The companion photo to this photo and my 100th contribution to this database provides an overview of the entire Juniata Shops complex and the City of Altoona beyond. The shops were built by the Pennsylvania Railroad as part of the Altoona Works, which at its peak covered over 300 acres and stretched some three miles bisecting the city. Today, the facility is on its fourth owner, having passed to Penn Central, then to Conrail, and finally, Norfolk Southern and remain one of the largest railroad locomotive repair and rebuild facilities in North America.
An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
