Title:  PRR 5886, EP-22, 1965
Description:  12th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, during November of 1965. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #5886 and another unit whose number is not recorded. Both were built by EMD. #5886 is an EP-22 built in 1950 and rated at 2,250 horsepower. They are stopped at the Altoona Station with a New York City-bound passenger train, after having come down the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve from Pittsburgh.
