|Penn Central Alco C425's #2441 and 2443 | Image courtesy of Robert Farkas via RRPictureArchives.net|
Today's picture may seem like it has nothing to do with anything here, but with a little investigation you would find that it has a lot to do with something familiar here. This photo was taken in Altoona, PA back in 1972 and features two former Penn Central Alco C425's. The trailing unit, #2443 is actually Detroit & Mackinac #181 while it was still hauling freight for Penn Central. It's interesting to note that the logo and name are missing from the sides of the long hood.
