Altoona Museum Roundhouse Getting ‘Tenants’

The new roundhouse in Altoona, Pa., at the Railroaders’ Memorial Museum will soon get some “new” tenants.

Museum officials said they plan to move into the facility Pennsylvania Railroad GG-1 electric locomotive No. 4913, Pullman solarium observation Loretto, Vulcan-built 0-4-0T Nancy, and Broadway Limited observation lounge Mountain View.

The tender from the museum’s Pennsylvania K-4s Pacific is now housed in the building. Museum volunteers are currently working to reassemble No. 1361, which was disassembled 18 years ago for restoration.

Construction of the roundhouse has been underway for more than two years.

The roundhouse will also have classroom space for Penn State’s railroad engineering and management classes.
