PRR 4-4-0 #1035
Title:  PRR 4-4-0 #1035
Description:  Beautiful original photo of an Altoona built 4-4-0 American type steam locomotive. On the back of the photo it lists this as a 1905 (D16sb class) as the build date but online sources point more to 1907-14. Nevertheless, the unknown photographer captured a great example of an early locomotive. With Mark Coles' help (see comment below), this loco was built as a class D16b in December 1905 by the PRR's Juniata Shops in Altoona. She was converted to class D16sb in October 1915 in the PRR's Trenton Shops. You can see a picture of her surviving Builders Plates and Numberplate here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lrmyers/16649708649/in/album-72157649056433924/.

Pennsylvania 1223 (D16) and Pennsylvania 1187(H3)
Title:  Pennsylvania 1223 (D16) and Pennsylvania 1187(H3)
Description:  The durable 4-4-0 had nation-wide appeal through most of the 19th-century, earning it the name “American.” The Pennsylvania Railroad perfected its design, creating the D16 class as the most modern American-style locomotives ever built. No. 1223 pulled passenger trains on Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey lines for 45 years. The locomotive was retired in 1950 and later borrowed by the Strasburg Rail Road beginning in 1960. It would once again return to steam service in 1965. It also pulled daily tourist trains and special excursions on the Strasburg Rail Road from 1965 until 1989.
