NKP765 with rods down roars westward uphill at Brickyard crossing on Altoona's east side with a employee excursion. Ahead is Horseshoe Curve and Gallitzin tunnels. After exiting the tunnel at Gallitzin, the train will then proceed back east to Altoona with Pennsy heritage unit 8102 leading the way.
That is one sexy beast. I can't wait for the day PRR 1361 or 4483 is doing this run.
This is an amazing photo and a beautiful locomotive
The highlights are a little blown out because of the clouds, and that might've been solved by bumping up the aperture another stop, but I'm not writing a whole paragraph for a critique to tell you that so I can spend more time ogling the locomotive up front.
