||PRR 9700, BF-15A, 1964
||8th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 12 January 1964. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9700, #2014-B, #9700-B, and #2012. All were built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works. #9700 is a BF-15A built in 1950 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #2014-B is BF-16 built in 1952 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. #9700-B is a BF-15A built in 1950 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #2012 is BF-16 built in 1952 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. They are about to pass under the 8th Street Bridge in Juniata with a 100-car coal train destined for Enola and points East. Visible in the immediate background are at least eight cabin cars and PRR engine #7923, an ES-12 built by EMD in 1957 and rated at 1,200 horsepower. Several ALCo road switchers are on the move and will soon pass the Juniata E&M Shop on the far right.
