|Mid-Mountain. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train West of Altoona, Pennsylvania, during mid-December of 1967. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #6102 and another whose number was not recorded. Both were built by EMD. #6102 is an EF-30A built in 1966 and rated at 3,000 horsepower. They are pushing a westbound mixed-cargo freight train up the Allegheny Mountains, but will uncouple at Gallitzin and return to East Altoona for yet another run up the Mountains.
