PRR 8949, H-10S, 1949 Editors Pick!        
Chione. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide via Al Chione that was taken near Englewood, Illinois, in December of 1949. The photographer is not identified. Shown here (L to R) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #8949 and three GM-EMD "EF" Class units whose numbers are not recorded. #8949 was built in Juniata as an H-8C during March of 1912, rebuilt as an H-9SC in February of 1916, rebuilt as an H-10S in April of 1920, and retired in May of 1950 after 38 years of faithful service. Nothin' like some steam-powered help on a freezin' Winter's morn!
