PRR 9479, FP-20, 1951
Title:  PRR 9479, FP-20, 1951
Description:  Mann. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide of a photo by Tom Harley that was taken at Union Furnace, Pennsylvania, in June of 1951. Shown here (R to L) are Pennsylvania Railroad engine #9479 and another unit whose road number is not recorded. Both are FP-20's built by Fairbanks-Morse and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. #9479 was constructed in September of 1948, later regeared and reclassified as an FF-20, and retired in December of 1963 after just 15 years of service. In this context, this A-A set has just crossed the Juniata River and is passing under three-track Signal Bridge #2163 on its way to Harrisburg with Train #72, the eastbound "Juniata."
