Juniata Terminal Company; Page 4 of 6.

The 3 track Juniata Terminal Facility was built in 1928 by The Pennsylvania Railroad as The Philadelphia Terminal for less than carload freight service.
I would like to express my thanks to the CEO of The Juniata Terminal Company , Mr. Bennett Levin, for allowing me access to take these photos.

Click here for a first look at a stripped Conrail E-8A #4021. This engine, ex PRR #4311 & ex Amtrak #499 was built by EMD in 1952. It will become Juniata Terminal Company (JTFS) #5711-A. Juniata Terminal Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 4/14/01.




Click here for a side look at the Cab area of a stripped Conrail E-8A #4021. With this 49 year old engine stripped down to bare metal, it is easy to see how much body work will be needed. Juniata Terminal Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 4/14/01.

A Message from Mr Bennett Levin on Saturday, 21 July 2001, from
Railway Preservation News Interchange - Message Index.


-" This afternoon the 5711 rolled out of our shops under its own power to join the 5809 basking in the bright sunlight of a pleasant July afternoon.

-My thanks to my son Eric, who single handedly managed the project and brought the locomotive back to life. My thanks also go to Steve Agostini who documented the day by day progress and posted the images on the -PRRTHS site. Al Hillman and his crew have to be the premier "appearance" gang when it comes to this kind of restoration.

-It is actually one week short of one year that we started the work on the 5809 and now we have two actual PRR locomotives restored as close as possible to their 1950's appearance.
-I would also like to thank the preservation community for their encouragement and support of what to some was not universally viewed very favorably. I also want to thank thouse who had the common sense and common courtesy not to visit our shops for a "sneak preview"

-I would encourage those of you who can possibly attend Altoona's Railfest to see the 5711 and the 5809 in early October and buy a ticket to ride behind them up and over the 'curve to raise money to support the restoration of the 1361,

-Once again, thanks and we hope you enjoy the effort and the final product."
