PRR 9468, FF-20, 1960 Editors Pick!        
Road Power. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad road locomotives in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, on 22 August 1960. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9468 and #9469. Both are FF-20's built by Fairbanks-Morse in 1947 and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. The crew has just coupled onto a long string of new and rebuilt freight cars, and has begun pulling them out of the Yard. This photo was taken near the intersection of Jones and South Juniata Streets. From here, this train will pass the Hollidaysburg Station and WYE Tower, climb the Allegheny Mountains using the New Portage Branch, and merge eventually with the mainline at Gallitzin.
