PRR 3808, EFS-17M, c. 1967
Title:  PRR 3808, EFS-17M, c. 1967
Description:  Byerly. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide of a photo by Fred Byerly that was taken in East Peoria, Illinois, perhaps in 1967. Photo Caption: "EMD GP-9B #3808, 1750-hp, at East Peoria, Ill." Shown here (R to L) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #3808 and #7269. Both are EFS-17M road switchers built by GM-EMD and rated at 1,750 horsepower each. #3808 was built as number "7183-B" in November of 1957 and renumbered "3808" in preparation for the PRR-NYC merger. #7269 was built in December of 1959 and was the very last GP-9 purchased by the PRR. This photo comes from a color slide set entitled "Diesels On The Pennsylvania" that's produced and distributed by Blackhawk Films of Davenport, Iowa (819-53).
