PRR 8656, AS-18AM, 1965
Title:  PRR 8656, AS-18AM, 1965
Description:  Rainy. Here is an original telephoto view that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train at the Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 12 October 1965. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #8656, 8655, 2261, 2360, and 7186-B. #8656 and 8655 are AS-18AM's built by the American Locomotive Company in 1957 and rated at 1,800 horsepower each; they are serving as "helpers" in this context. #2261 and #2360 are EF-25's built by EMD and rated at 2,500 horsepower each; #2261 was built in 1964, but #2360 was built in 1965. #7186-B is an EFS-17M built by EMD in 1957 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. They are about to pass under four-track Signal Bridge #2417/2418 with a 99-car westbound mixed-cargo freight train and N-8 caboose #478151. Bringing-up the rear are "pushers" #6500 and #6306.
