PRR K-4 Pacific 1361 rests at the Horseshoe Curve on May 22, 1977. A gift from the PRR to the city of Altoona, 1361 was placed at the Curve "permanently" after her retirement in 1957.Her presence would be eclipsed this day by the run through of RDG 4-8-4 #2102 and Cuyahoga Valley Line 2-8-2 #4070.

A restoration was begun the fall of 1985 and completed in April 1987 to bring 1361 back to operating condition. A gleaming 1361 steamed briefly in July and October 1987, October 1988, and September 1989 before breaking a wheel bearing and being placed at Steamtown in Scranton, PA.
