T1 Class 4-4-4-4 Duplex Locomotive Collection

Designed for fastest passenger service the T1 locomotive was everything: beautiful to behold, unusual, powerful, fast, slippery, success and failure. Pennsy's chunk of "too much experimentation" was born too late and died too soon. There were two experimental engines, the first, the 6110, and the second the 6111, both were built in 1942 by Baldwin for the war time traffic. The 6111 was equipped with a Franklin booster in its trailing truck; this added 13,500 lbs. of tractive effort, no other T1's had boosters. In April 1944, the 6110 was sent to Altoona test plant for a thorough instrument check after compiling 120,000 miles of road service. The test reports were excellent and elated PRR motive power men placed orders for fifty engines. All of the engines were built during 1945 and 1946. Altoona built locomotives 5500-5524, plus all the tenders, while Baldwin built locomotives 5525-5549. Only very slight modifications appeared in the design. The T1 was the last steam locomotive to be built in the Altoona Juniata Locomotive Shops.................................................................................

Just mention the Photo No. This particular painting Departure at Dawn of T1 5507 was commissioned in June 1980. Caption: A westbound train is ready to leave Harrisburg station, just three blocks from Pennsylvania's capitol. The time period is right after World War II, during the brief, troublesome career of PRR's streamlined T1 steam locomotives, which Teller had never painted for a PRR calendar. At left is the eastbound Broadway Limited, which has traveled overnight from Chicago and will momentarily be on its way to New York. It is still using a set of 1938 streamlined cars, having not yet been re-equipped with it postwar cars, which came in 1948-49. I recommend this print in a 20 x 30 which is absolutely fantastic. An 11 x 14 is also very nice. The title and the caption just stated will be included with the print. Ask about the reasonable prices.
