PRR Freight at Princeton Jct Behind P5A's
A pair of PRR P5A boxcabs lead an eastbound PRR freight through Princeton Jct,, NJ on the same day that produced the sequence of GG1 photos I post last week. I do not believe there were many, if any, grade crossings along this line, so the cab of a P5A boxcab was not as unsafe a place to be as on lines with grade crossings. The P5A's with center (steeple) cabs and eventually the GG1's were a reaction to a fatal grade crossing accident involving a younger version of one of these P5A boxcabs.
