||PRR 9574, BF-15, 1962
||Wye Switches. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train at the Wye Switches in Duncansville, Pennsylvania, on 01 August 1962. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9574 and #2008. Both were built by Baldwin Locomotive Works. #9574 is a BF-15 built in 1949 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #2008 is a BF-16 built in 1951 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. The caboose is #477719. These two Baldwin "Sharks" and the caboose have just come from East Altoona. They are about to cross US Route 22, after which they will stop and back into the Hollidaysburg Yards, pick-up a freight train, and then pull it up the New Portage Branch to Gallitzin and points West.
