This photo is a brilliant slide of history! Both the RDC and the GP9 behind it are ex-NH (Hancock air whistle) - love the Gulf Oil tank car lurking in the background! I suppose that the rest of the locos are ex-PRR?

Upon further review, the ruling on the field is that RDC has regular bell-type air horns (painted black?), and not the NHRR's trademark Hancock air whistles.

The two GP-9's are X-NH, RDC-2 is X-NYC (no pilots, just bar attached to trucks in front of lead set of wheels) and E-8 and GP-30 are X-PRR.
