PRR 6311, AF-27, 1966
Title:  PRR 6311, AF-27, 1966
Description:  Mid-Mountain. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train West of Altoona, Pennsylvania, during mid-June of 1966. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #6311, #6056, and another unit whose number is not visible. #6311 is an AF-27 built by the American Locomotive Company in 1965 and rated at 2,700 horsepower. #6056 is an EF-30A built by EMD in 1966 and rated at 3,000 horsepower. They are pushing a westbound mixed-cargo freight train up the Allegheny Mountains, but will uncouple at Gallitzin and return to East Altoona for yet another run up the Mountains.
