"Trains" Magazine, April 1946
Title:  "Trains" Magazine, April 1946
Description:  Here is photo taken by Mr. William H. Rau, circa 1891. It was published originally in the April 1946 issue of "Trains" magazine, page 20. Photo Caption: "The old reversed photo on Horseshoe Curve shows a train typical of the 1880's on the Pennsylvania Railroad. The neat cap-stacked engines were characteristic of the road." Shown here is PRR engine #601, a D-11A (4-4-0) "American" built in the Altoona Machine Shops during 1886 and retired in July of 1907 after 21 years of faithful service. It has paused for a moment for its portrait to be taken, but will soon continue rounding the Curve on its way down the Allegheny Mountains to Altoona and points East. Venerable "Milepost 242" stands guard at the far right of the photo!
