PRR 5756, AP-20, c. 1949
Title:  PRR 5756, AP-20, c. 1949
Description:  Chione. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide via Al Chione that was taken at the Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pennsylvania, perhaps in 1949. The photographer is not identified. Shown here (R to L) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #5756 and two more units whose numbers are not recorded. All are AP-20's built by the American Locomotive Company and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. #5756 was built in November of 1947, later regeared for freight service and reclassified as an AFP-20, and retired in September of 1962 after just 15 years of revenue service. They are pulling a passenger train down the Allegheny Mountains and around the Curve on their way to Altoona, Harrisburg, and points East. The date is an approximation.

PRR 4632, I-1SA, 1957
Title:  PRR 4632, I-1SA, 1957
Description:  Northbound Coal. Here is a photo of a Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives taken by Philip R. Hastings, 5 May 1957. Shown here is PRR engine #4632, an I-1SA (2-10-0) "Decapod" built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works during 1923 and retired in January of 1960. Also visible are two PRR Diesel locomotives: #5756 and #5757. Both are AFP-20's built by the American Locomotive Company in 1947 and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. Given the placement of this photo in the series, the implication is that these locomotives uncoupled from the coal train, went to the water tower, and then only engine #4632 recoupled with the coal train. Photo taken near Leolyn, Pennsylvania.
