PRR 2511, GF-25, 1964
Title:  PRR 2511, GF-25, 1964
Description:  Wye Switches. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train at the Wye Switches in Duncansville, Pennsylvania, on 05 October 1964. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #2511, #9546-B, and #9686. #2511 is a GF-25 built by GE in 1962 and rated at 2,500 horsepower. #9546-B and #9686 are EH-15's built by EMD and rated at 1,500 horsepower each; the B-unit was built in 1948, but the A-unit was built in 1949. These three Diesels, two freight cars, PRR caboose #477781, and three ALCO helper engines have just arrived from Altoona and have stopped in the middle of US Route 22 so that the fireman can call-in to request clearance to proceed up the New Portage Branch for a short distance and then stop. After that, they will back into the Hollidaysburg Yards, pick-up a freight train, and then pull it up the New Portage Branch to Gallitzin and points West.

PRR 9541, EF-15, 1965
Title:  PRR 9541, EF-15, 1965
Description:  Wye Switches. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train at the Wye Switches in Duncansville, Pennsylvania, on 03 July 1965. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9541, #9686, and #7072. All were built by EMD. #9541 is an EF-15 built in 1948, but #9686 is an EH-15 built in 1949; both are rated at 1,500 horsepower. #7072 is an EFS-17M built in 1956 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. These three locomotives and a 77-car mixed-cargo freight train are stopped at 3rd Street in Duncansville, awaiting orders to proceed up the New Portage Branch Line to Gallitzin and points West. There are also two pushers on the end: PRR engines #8613 and #8606.

Description:  Wye Switches. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train at the Wye Switches in Duncansville, Pennsylvania, on 03 July 1965. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9541, #9686, and #7072. All were built by EMD. #9541 is an EF-15 built in 1948, but #9686 is an EH-15 built in 1949; both are rated at 1,500 horsepower. #7072 is an EFS-17M built in 1956 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. These three locomotives and a 77-car mixed-cargo freight train are stopped at 3rd Street in Duncansville, awaiting orders to proceed up the New Portage Branch Line to Gallitzin and points West. Once upon a time, there were four sets of tracks at this point ~ as evidenced by the wide signal bridge. This is also where an eastbound freight train that had lost its brakes coming down the New Portage Branch Line crashed into several waiting locomotives on Sunday, 06 November 1916.

The wooden shanty with coal-burning stove is a left-over from the good old days when the New Portage Branch Line was double-tracked, and switches needed to be thrown at all hours of the day or night.
