PRR 8668, AS-18AM, 1965         
24th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 10 January 1965. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #8668 and #8662. Both are AS-18AM's built by the American Locomotive Company in 1958 and rated at 1,800 horsepower each. They are returning to East Altoona to make another helper/pusher run up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and back. This photo taken just West of the 24th Street Bridge.
