The Central of New Jersey heritage unit races through downtown Altoona (and away from the sunset) on the point of an eastbound intermodal. The Altoona Railroaders' Memorial Museum stands as a background. There's really not a lot left of the old 12th Street Shops--the Master Mechanic's Building (left background), Erecting Shop #3 (now Altoona Pipe & Steel, left out of frame), Fire Station #7 (Pipe & Steel's offices, left of the museum), and about half of the X-ray lab still stand. The rest of the complex was demolished in the late 1960s.
The CNJ never came to Altoona, obviously. Attempts to lay siege to the PRR's grip on Central and Western Pennsylvania never ended well (see the South Penn and the scheme that involved the Altoona, Beech Creek, & Northern). But once the Penn Central, Lehigh Valley, Lehigh & Hudson, Reading, E-L, and CNJ folded into Conrail, things were a little different for a while as far as paint went.
