P&W in Altoona

Why is PW 2008 in Altoona? http://rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=2290692 The pic makes the NS unit look out of place with the PW and MBTA engine
"Why would you take a train to go see another train?"
Some people just don't understand.

That may be the greatest contrast in all of history. :)

Not there anymore. After making its way from Altoona to Conway to Buffalo and back to Altoona, the 2008 was back on its way to Binghamton yesterday. Reported, NS train 31T-9921 making its way up the D&H with P&W 2008 4th out in its locomotive consist.

Sorry about the posts re: the 2008 in the "Acquiring New Power" thread - I forgot this thread was still out there.
