PRR 5889, EP-22, 1960
Title:  PRR 5889, EP-22, 1960
Description:  Chione. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide via Al Chione that was taken in Louisville, Kentucky, on 14 May 1960. The photographer is not identified. Shown here is Pennsylvania Railroad engine #5889, an EP-22 built by GM-EMD in April of 1950 and rated at 2,250 horsepower. Looks to me like its crew is in the process of pulling a passenger train out of the Louisville Station.
