First - The Juniata Locomotive Shops Sign


Second - NS Exhibit Car


Third - NS #43


Fourth - NS #45


Fifth - 3 SD60E's


Sixth - 3 of the High Hood's ready for Cresson Steel


Seventh - SD40-2 with a new Admiral Cab

You will also notice in the picture of NS #45, there is two scale test cars.

Great pics! Nice to see a turntable and roundhouse still being put to good use.

Matthew,

Hope you don't mind me adding acouple of pictures of the Juniata turntable from back in 1971. It was a different railroad back then. just wish I would of had a 35mm instead of a Kodak 126 Instamatic.







Have a lot of slides from the Altoona area around the early 70's. Just need to get them scanned in and saved on disk.

Ray this is not a roundhouse. It is Norfolk Southerns Juniata Locomotive Shops where they repair and rebuild locomotives. There is also a paint shop on the other side of the Shop building.

Bernd, I don't mind at all. Please if you can post more.

I've got lots more of the area around the yards. There was a nice foot bridge spanning the yard. I believe if memory serves that it was at the west end. As I go through my slides I'll scan them in and post.

Interesting how things have changed since I took pictures back in 1971, 42 years, WOW.

Cool, can't wait to see them. Yes it sure has changed from 1971. The pics I took was from a second trip down there. The ones you see of the repair shops was my first visit. I only live 20 minutes from altoona and that was the first time I got to see the shops.

Played around with my photo program this weekend. I think I may have improved on the two Altoona pictures. Much easier on the eyes.







Now I just need to dig through the hundreds of slides to find more.
