    Default Pennsylvania T1 4-4-4-4 duplex steam locomotive

    Pennsylvania T1 4-4-4-4 duplex - possibly the ultimate in steam locomotive design?

    Designed to haul 1,000 ton passenger trains long distances at 100 miles per hour.

    Awesome appearance , awesome power, though I've been told not well loved by locomotive engineers because of their skittish behaviour. Apparently uncontrollable wheel spin at 100 miles per hour was a terrifying experience.

    Both videos are best viewed at High Definition and full screen.

    Phil, what scale (HO) and what company built it. The model is incorrect. The portholes on the front end of the T-1 were only used on the first few of the 6000 series(6110 etc) which were the first few T-1s and not on the 5000 series as this one is. The tender lacks the train phone equipment. That said, it runs well and warmed my heart. BTW, I cannot tell if this a model or virtual loco. Mike

    Will this addon work with the Steam version of Trainz?
