Class D16sb Passenger Locomotive................
The American-type locomotive was the first standard all-purpose engine used in this country. It was the Model T of the rails....a light, versatile machine for pulling the limited or the local freight. On the Pennsylvania the trim, graceful D16 enjoyed tremendous popularity, and at the turn of the century it could be seen almost anywhere on the system, Gradually, however, the demand for heavier motive power and specialization the American type to branch lines and then into the limbo of things forgotten. The 4-4-0 is now virtually extinct on the Pennsylvania and elsewhere. This survivor No. 1223 was built at Altoona in 1899. Photo No. 116
