Southern No. 58
Title:  Southern No. 58
Description:  A late-running Southern Railway No. 58, the New Orleans-Meridian local, was entering the siding at Slidell during a very unusual south Louisiana snowfall. The train was running with GP38 2796 and GP30 2528, and was here to meet piggyback train No. 219. The track on the other side of the 2796 was the south leg of the Slidell wye. The wye's tail track served the American Creosote Works plant, which later became an EPA Superfund site. The wye was subsequently removed.

Box Canyon Trestle and Dam
Title:  Box Canyon Trestle and Dam
Description:  The scenic highlight of the trip is Box Canyon trestle and dam. The bridge was built in 1911, the dam just below the bridge in 1955. The train stops on the bridge for a few minutes to let passengers take in the sights. Despite the scenic wonder, maintenance on this bridge is the main reason this run is ending after 2016.

Title:  PRR 9771, EF-15A, 1963
Description:  24th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 11 October 1963. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9771, #9687, and #7262. All were built by EMD. #9771 is an EF-15A built in 1951 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #9687 is an EH-15 built in 1949 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #7262 is an EFS-17M built in 1959 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. They are about to pass under the 24th Street Bridge with a 103-car mixed-cargo freight train on their way up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and points West. Partially visible on the left is SLOPE Tower.
