PRR 9537, EF-15, 1965
Title:  PRR 9537, EF-15, 1965
Description:  Slope to Works. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train between SLOPE and WORKS Towers in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 06 June 1965. Shown here (R to L) is PRR engine #9537 and another unit whose number is not visible. Both were built by EMD. #9537 is an EF-15 built in 1948 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. They are pulling a westbound train consisting of empty hopper cars past WORKS Tower and under the new version of the 4th Street Bridge. Looks like some front-end air conditioning, to me!

PRR 9392, ES-12, 1966
Title:  PRR 9392, ES-12, 1966
Description:  ELDO Action. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad trains in the Eldorado section of Altoona, Pennsylvania, during January of 1966. Shown here are two PRR trains: the one on the left is sitting still, but the one on the right is moving. On the left (R to L) are PRR engines #9819 and #9537. Both locomotives were built by EMD and are rated at 1,500 horsepower. #9819 is an EF-15A built in 1951, while #9537 is an EF-15 built in 1948. On the right is PRR engine #9392, an ES-12 switcher built by EMD in 1950 and rated at 1,200 horsepower. It is pulling a local train from Altoona through Eldorado to the Hollidaysburg Yards. It is actually by-passing the line-haul train that is still waiting for permission to proceed.
