This photo was taken behind the Juniata E&M Shop.

Title:  Oddball
Description:  Conrail had 100 GP15-1s, all new from EMD in 1979, which were scattered about the system in local service. Most of them survived to the split, with NS and CSX each getting some. CSX had some already, former Chessie units. On NS, they were orphans, and wound up in odd places. One is working the west end of local H2A(I swear, NS picks the letters and numbers out of a hat when they set up their train symbols) passing the Erie station, at right, in Owego.

Title:  PRR 9468, FF-20, 1960
Description:  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.

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.
