Now, those are some diesels. Big and beautiful.

Amazing! The Brunswick green looks green, and the pinstripes shine brightly.

Two "Centipedes"! Too bad they had so many mechanical problems (including each one being wired a bit differently so that there were no reliable technical documents for them) and all eventually got relegated to helper status. I'd have loved to see them in action, especially since running to St. Louis these would have plied the at-double track little farm road crossing to my grandparents' farm south of Jewett, IL. However, given their maintenance issues I sincerely doubt they ran mail for long.

Few things give me such a strong desire to want to go back in time as photos of the PRR. I am less than thirty years old. Due to the fact that many old PRR photos are in very familiar places, seeing photos of other bygone railroads, doesn't have that effect as much.

Great shot of a "Centipede". Nice exposure and crystal clear. What was the rated horsepower of these beasts?

Each unit had two 1500 hp prime movers totalling 3000 hp. When downrated to 2500 hp for helper service each engine was reduced to 1250 hp.

Is this also considered a Baldwin DR-12-8-1500?
