||PRR I-1SA, Circa 1950
||Fire Power. Here is an original photo by Mr. Robert Hopkins that was taken at the Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pennsylvania, during the early 1950's. Shown here is a single Pennsylvania Railroad I-1SA (2-10-0) "Decapod" steam locomotive pulling a mixed-cargo freight train around the Curve and up the Allegheny Mountains to Gallitzin and points West. Note that the track and ballast are in tip-top form! This photo was a gift to me from Mrs. Vera Hopkins, a long-time resident of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania.
