PRR 5709, EP-22, 1965
Title:  PRR 5709, EP-22, 1965
Description:  WIL-ALT-65. Here is an original (color-enhanced) time-exposure that I took during a trip on Pennsylvania Railroad passenger trains from Wilmington to Altoona on 28 March 1965. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #5709, #5856-B, and #5902. All were built by EMD. #5709 and #5902 are EP-22's rated at 2,250 horsepower each; #5709 was built in 1952, but #5902 was built in 1951. #5856-B is an EP-20 built in 1948 and rated at 2,000 horsepower. They have just arrived in Altoona, and the new crew is awaiting orders to proceed with a 17-car passenger train from New York City heading to Johnstown, Pittsburgh, and points West. The time is 7:55 P.M.
