Horseshoe Curve-1966. Here is an original telephoto view that I took at the Pennsylvania Railroad's Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pennsylvania, during May of 1966. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #8668, #8663, #2200, #2201, #2203, and #2202. #8668 and #8663 are both AS-18AM's built by the American Locomotive Company in 1958 and rated at 1,800 horsepower each. #2200, #2201, #2203, and #2202 are all EF-22's built by EMD in 1963 and rated at 2,250 horsepower each. They are pulling a westbound ore train. Note all of the G-39 "Ore Jennies"!
