PRR West Philadelphia, #1 of 2, 1943
Title:  PRR West Philadelphia, #1 of 2, 1943
Description:  Here is the first of two photos taken by Mr. Harold M. Lambert. It was published originally in the December 1943 issue of "Trains" magazine, page 22. Photo Caption: "The smokiest, dirtiest place on a railroad is the engine terminal. But because the locomotive personifies the railroad to most people, the roundhouse would easily top any popularity poll, and, as shown by these photos at West Philadelphia on the Pennsylvania Railroad, the engine terminal is extremely photogenic. The roundhouse itself is not so much a garage for locomotives as a place for light repairs, and in these days of heavy traffic [during WWII], the railroads are turning locomotives so fast that none of them tarry in roundhouses any longer than absolutely necessary to keep them in first-class operating condition." Shown here is Pennsylvania Railroad engine #198, an E-6S (4-4-2) "Atlantic" built in Juniata during August of 1914 and retired in April of 1951.
