PRR 9468, FF-20, 1960
Title:  PRR 9468, FF-20, 1960
Description:  Road Power. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad road locomotives in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, on 22 August 1960. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9468 and #9469. Both are FF-20's built by Fairbanks-Morse in 1948 and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. This photo reveals just how the process worked. The locomotives and one caboose would have been driven forward from East Altoona to the Wye Switches, turned about, and then run backwards from there to the Hollidaysburg Yards. This crew has just uncoupled from N-5 caboose #477020, which will be pulled to the far end of the Yard and coupled to the out-bound train by engine #9394 ~ an ES-12 switcher built by EMD in 1950. After the caboose is out of the way, this crew will back their FF-20 locomotives a bit further into the Yard and couple onto the train they'll pull out of Hollidaysburg up the New Portage Branch Line to Gallitzin and points West. This photo was taken just west of the intersection of Jones and South Juniata Streets. Visible in the distance is the PRR's Samuel Rea Shop.

This photo was taken near the intersection of Jones and South Juniata Streets. From here, this train will pass the Hollidaysburg Station and WYE Tower, climb the Allegheny Mountains using the New Portage Branch, and merge eventually with the mainline at Gallitzin.
