||Oil Power. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide taken in Englewood, Illinois. Shown here (L to R) are Pennsylvania Railroad engine #9477 and another unit whose number is not recorded. Both are FP-20's built by Fairbanks-Morse and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. #9477 was built in July of 1948, later regeared an classified as an FF-20 freight locomotive, and retired in December of 1963 after just 15 years of revenue service. In this context, they are pulling an eastbound passenger train and have stopped at the Englewood Station to pick-up more riders. The photographer's name and the date are not recorded.
