History

This 10 wheeler 4-6-0 was developed to handle heavy trains, both freight and passenger. The Pennsylvania Railroad needed a more powerful locomotive 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 the 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 automated 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 Pennsylvania Railroad 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.
