PRR 4230, EP-20, 1966
Title:  PRR 4230, EP-20, 1966
Description:  Chione. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide via Al Chione that was taken near Gallitzin, Pennsylvania, on 21 October 1966. The photographer is not identified. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #4230 and three more "EP" Class units whose numbers are not recorded. All were built by GM-EMD. #4230 is an EP-20 built in April of 1949 as number "5870," rated at 2,000 horsepower, and renumbered "4230" in 1966. They have just emerged from the New Portage Tunnel with an eastbound passenger train, and are on the way down the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Altoona, Harrisburg, and points East. The bridge the train is crossing passes over the westbound New Portage Branch just before it merges with the main line.
