Rolling out of yesterday, PRR FP-7 9835 leads F-3 9547B and F-7 9787 through the big curve east of Mifflin, PA (approx. MP 153) just after 6am. Seeing an A-B-A set of Fs at this time was becoming uncommon with the influx of 2nd generation power. Renumbering and more spartan lettering for the upcoming Penn Central merger would soon render the classic PRR freight scheme unusual. Nice head-end consist with the Western Pacific, Rio Grande gold and silver and "Everywhere West" boxcars. Four tracks had been reduced to three along much of the old Middle Division by this time, with the middle track signaled for movement in both directions.
