"Trains" Magazine, November 1950
Title:  "Trains" Magazine, November 1950
Description:  Here is a photo taken by Mr. P.M. Rotzler. It was published originally in the November 1950 issue of "Trains" magazine, page 32. Photo Caption: "Even Pennsylvania's famed Horseshoe Curve, ankle-deep in the cinders of generations of the system's heaviest steam locomotives, fell to the diesel in the 1940 decade. This shark-nosed, four-unit Baldwin is moving to the westbound Altoona yards before going up the Curve." Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9588 and three more "BF" Class units whose numbers are not recorded. All were built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works. #9588 is a BF-15 built in June of 1949 and retired in June of 1964 after just 15 years of revenue service.
