History Of The Pennsylvania T1

The Pennsylvania Railroad’s 4-4-4-4 Class T1 passenger locomotives were their last-built steam locomotives. They were not articulated, but were Duplex drive and had poppet valves. The first two, #6110 and #6111, were built by Baldwin in 1942. These locomotives were considered successful and could pull 16 cars at 100 MPH. They were also technically advanced and more efficient than previous designs. Later, 50 more of these were built in 1945-46 for a total of 52. Locomotives #5500 to #5524 were built by the Pennsylvania Railroad’s Juniata Shops and #5525 to #5549 were built by Baldwin. The large tenders carried 38.6 tons of coal, 19,200 gallons of water and could travel between Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Chicago, Illinois with only one stop. Wheel slip problems were later found to be controllable by more experienced engineers. The streamline design by Raymond Loewy was in later years the inspiration for the Baldwin Lima “Shark Nose” diesels. JH
