PRR 9581, BF-15, 1960
Title:  PRR 9581, BF-15, 1960
Description:  Good Day. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad property in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, on 25 July 1960. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9581, #9589-B, and #9706. All were built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works and are rated at 1,500 horsepower each. #9581 and 9589-B are BF-15's built in 1949, but #9706 is a BF-15A built in 1950. These locomotives are in the process of backing-up to couple onto the train they will pull up the New Portage Branch Line via the Muleshoe Curve. This photo was taken near the Yard Master's Office, at the very eastern end of South Juniata Street. The PRR's Samuel Rea Shop is in the background. Also visible are the wooden water tower (the last vestige of the "Age of Steam"), as well as several all-steel passenger cars on their way to be scrapped at the PRR's Reclamation Plant in Frankstown. #6 of 12.

Title:  PRR 9581, BF-15, 1960
Description:  Good Day. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, on 25 July 1960. Shown here (F to R) are PRR engines #9581, #9589-B, and #9706. All were built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works and are rated at 1,500 horsepower each. #9581 and 9589-B are BF-15's built in 1949, but #9706 is a BF-15A built in 1950. They are pulling a long string of gondola cars out of the Yard on their way up the New Portage Branch Line to Gallitzin and points West. This photo was taken from the old Union Street Bridge, facing East toward the Samuel Rea Shop. South Juniata Street is visible on the left; a string of vintage gondolas (consigned to maintenance-or-way service) sit next to the moving train; the Madden Boiler Works are on the right in the middle distance. #7 of 12.
