Hi list,
Does anyone know when the PRR closed SLOPE tower in Altoona? I saw a picture
from 1965, in which the tower was still open. I think PC just had it as an
interlocking, even in 1968.

Only from personal recollection, I believe that 1965 was the last.  The tower
remained standing for some time, but was operated remotely from Alto.  The
"remote" in Alto is still there today.
