PRR 4616, I-1SA, 1956
Title:  PRR 4616, I-1SA, 1956
Description:  #4616 & #4243. Here is a photo of Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives taken by Philip R. Hastings on 14 September 1956. Shown here (F to R) are PRR engines #4616 and #4243. Both are I-1SA (2-10-0) "Decapods." #4616 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as an I-1S during 1923, rebuilt in Juniata as an I-1SA in February of 1937, and retired in August of 1959. #4243 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as an I-1S during 1923, rebuilt in Juniata as an I-1SA in December of 1943, and retired in March of 1957. The brakeman's filling #4243's tender with water. Given the placement of this photo in the series, the implication is that these locomotives uncoupled from the ore train, went to the water tower, recoupled with the ore train, and then proceeded on their journey. Also note the "doghouse" on the tender, the full-empty gauge on the wooden water tower, and the silver-colored telephone box visible at the far right.

The slide's caption indicates that the train stopped due to a "broken coupler knuckle" on one of the hopper cars!
