Remarks & Notes 
This most unusual locomotive has been immaculately restored by the RR Museum of PA. The chunky streamlined loco was the only fireless 0-8-0 ever built. It was built by Heisler in 1939, weighs approx. 95 tons, and has 48" drivers. It can operate at a range of 50-350 psi. which gives it a tractive effort of 31,500-42,000 lbs. The "boiler" (aka tank) has a 6060 gallon capacity.
