PRR 5765, EP-22, 1965 Editors Pick!        
Birmingham. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train near Birmingham, Pennsylvania, on 10 July 1965. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #5765, #5714, #5889, #5856, and #5867. All were built by EMD. #5765 and #5714 are EP-22's built in 1952 and rated at 2,250 horsepower each. #5889 is an EP-22 built in 1950 and rated at 2,250 horsepower. #5856 and #5867 are EP-20's rated at 2,000 horsepower each; #5856 was built in 1948, but #5867 was built in 1949. They are pulling a 48-car westbound mail/express train. This photo was taken at the stone quarry crossing, just off of State Route 453.
