Description:  Fire Power. Here is a commercial photo of a Pennsylvania Railroad steam locomotive taken at the Juniata Erecting and Machine Shop in Altoona, Pennsylvania, during June of 1957.

It has yet to be reassembled/restored/resurrected! Commercial photo; photographer's name unknown.

Description:  Fire Power. Here is a painting by Mr. Donald E. Antes, Jr. It was the cover illustration on the April 1976 issue of "Railroad" magazine. Cover Caption: "Our classic cover painting of a Pennsy train on Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pa., was done by Donald E. Antes, Jr., president of Hall of Steam, 1407 N.

Depicted here is Pennsylvania Railroad engine #1361, a K-4S (4-6-2) "Pacific" built in Juniata during May of 1918 and enshrined at the Curve on Satruday, 08 June 1957.

It was later pulled out and restored, and is now again the subject of a restoration effort. In 1984, it was sitting in the crook of the curve, taking in the Conrail action.
