Description:  Rolfe. Here is an original photo by N. Rolfe that was taken at the 12th Street Footbridge and Passenger Station in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, 4 November 1951. Shown here is Pennsylvania Railroad engine #4604, an I-1SA (2-10-0) "Decapod" built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as an I-1S during October of 1923, rebuilt in Juniata as an I-1SA in January of 1936, and retired in October of 1955 after 32 years of faithful service. It is passing under the 12th Street Footbridge on its way up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and points West. The white objects on the Station's tarmac are pieces of ice dropped from departed passenger trains. Dominating the background is one of the buildings constituting the PRR's 12th Street Car Shops. #2 of 6.
