PRR 5842, EP-20, 1966
Title:  PRR 5842, EP-20, 1966
Description:  12th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, during March of 1966. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #5842, a unit whose number is not recorded, and #5760. All were built by EMD. #5842 is an EP-20 built in 1947 and rated at 2,000 horsepower. #5760 is an EP-22 built in 1952 and rated at 2,250 horsepower. They are pulling a westbound passenger train under the 12th Street Bridge and are about to stop in front of the Altoona Station. During this stop, not only will passengers get off or board the train, but both engine and train crews will change as well.

Along with their westbound passenger train, they have stopped in front of the Altoona Station. During this stop, not only will passengers get off or board the train, but both engine and train crews will change as well. Visible in the distance is the 17th Street Bridge, as well as three other PRR locomotives; the one in the middle is engine #6513, which will serve as this train's helper up the Allegheny Mountains.

PRR 6513, GF-25A, 1966
Title:  PRR 6513, GF-25A, 1966
Description:  12th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, during March of 1966. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #6513 and #5842. #6513 is a GF-25A built by General Electric in 1965 and rated at 2,500 horsepower. #5842 is an EP-20 built in 1947 and rated at 2,000 horsepower. In this photo, #6513 is in the process of coupling with #5842 to help pull the passenger train up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin ~ whereupon #6513 will uncouple and return to Altoona for yet another helper/pusher run up the Mountains. Note the railroader on the other side of the tracks, who will couple all of the necessary hoses.
