Both are interesting shots. The top one shows one of 14 E7B units and the bottom shot shows the great PRR T1 that was gone too soon. I hope I live long enough to see the 5550 completed!

Early 1950s, last Richmond photo...
Until now, I didn't realize there is conductor or someone in uniform shadowing the fueler. I believe this picture was taken from the small tower that stood at the 9th crossing. My mother grew-up a few hundred yards away directly behind this picture on what she calls short 9th in Richmond. The house is still there - white with green trim. - Joe Iacuone

Another photo with interesting power. In addition to the Alco PA there is a rare BP20 passenger shark not yet relegated to NJ local service!
