About: Welcome! If this is your first visit I appreciate your stopping by. was created to document the work of the Juniata Shops, as well as railroading in Altoona, PA in general. On this web site you'll find lists of all steam, electric, gas, and diesel locomotives built in Altoona, as well as lists of "Juniata Rebuilds," locomotives with at least moderate changes that would make them stand out among other ordinary locomotives. Also look through the photo galleries for photos of stripped down locomotives and samples of the Juniata Paint Shop's work.
