After Casey Jones, this is a new 4-6-0 USA Style live steam locomotive model which are available from the end of 2014. Welcome to enquire and order now.
The Ten Wheeler, 4-6-0 Type, was developed to handle the heavier trains, both freight and passenger than the 4-4-0 types could handle. Modern engineering resulted in railroads developing many, much more powerful locomotives than the 4-6-0 wheel arrangement. The Pennsy had over 100 ten wheelers and needed a more powerful model for commuter trains with their many stations and tight schedules. This resulted in the Class G5s. Built at ALtoona's Juniata's shops, these ninety locomotives were the heaviest 4-6-0's ever built at 237,000 pounds and most powerful at 41,330 pounds tractive effort. With 68 inch drivers, they had the power to quickly accelerate a good size passenger train. The rear driver was staggered further back to allow superb weight balance on the drivers. Used mostly for commuter trains with many quick starts and stops, they operated on track where heavier engines were prohibited. They were built with super heaters, power reverse gear and were hand fired - never receiving stokers. They were also used on milk trains. They were built between 1923 and 1925 with a batch of fifty numbered 5700 to 5749 for the Pennsy and 31 for the subsidiary Long Island Railroad with numbers 20 - 50. These engines lasted until the end of steam in the mid 1950's.
