Title:  PRR 8446, AS-16A, 1965
Description:  8th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 11 April 1965. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #8446, #9623, and #9556. #8446 is an AS-16A built by the American Locomotive Company in 1952 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. #9623 is an AF-16 built by the American Locomotive Company in 1951 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. #9556 is an EF-15 built by EMD in 1948 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. They are passing under the 8th Street Bridge into the Westbound Receiving Yard with an 85-car mixed-cargo freight train and N-8 caboose #478021. Visible on the left is a partial view of ROSE Tower.
