Pennsy GP9 at Horseshoe Curve Gets New Paint

The former Pennsylvania Railroad GP9 on static display at Horseshoe Curve near Altoona, Pennsylvania, has received a new coat of paint.

Trains magazine reported on its website that the unit now has the correct shade of Brunswick Green used by the Pennsy.

The locomotive is situated in a park that is maintained by the Railroaders Memorial Museum of Altoona.

Museum officials also said that Horseshoe Curve park will remain open on a limited basis during the winter.

In previous years the park closed between January and March. The winter hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Some exceptions will be made for the upcoming holiday season and during the first two weeks of January.
