They are pulling a 9,000-ton iron-ore train as they approach a grade crossing near Crowl, Pennsylvania. You can almost hear the Decapod's banshee whistle!

PRR 4616, I-1SA, 1957
Title:  PRR 4616, I-1SA, 1957
Description:  #4616 & #4243. Here is a photo of Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives taken by Philip R. Hastings, ca. 1957. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #4616 and #4243. Both are I-1SA (2-10-0) "Decapods" built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1923. #4616 was retired in 1959, but #4243 was retired in 1957. The brakeman's filling #4243's tender with water. Given the placement of this photo in the series, the implication is that these locomotives uncoupled from the ore train, went to the water tower, recoupled with the ore train, and then proceeded on their journey. Also note the "doghouse" on the tender, the full-empty gauge on the wooden water tower, and the silver-colored telephone box visible at the far right.
