Description

Nicknamed the big "Swoosh" because it didn't have the typical steam "chug" sound of conventional steamers. The Pennsy Turbine locomotive was produced by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1944 and was given the classification: S-Experimental. The Pennsylvania Railroad took delivery of the S-2 prototype to test the application of turbo power on the rails.

Using steam to power the turbines, the S-2 had no cylinder, piston, or valve motion but could generate up to 6,900 horsepower. Unfortunately, the S-2 only saw service between Crestline, Ohio and Chicago, due to the limitations of turbine power. During startup, the S-2 has a huge appetite for coal and water; it carried 42.5 tons of coal and 19,500 gallons of water and would have needed much more over a longer route. Turbine locomotives never moved beyond the experimental stage, and this 6-8-6 giant wound up being the only one of its kind.

We are proud to offer this semi-scale S-2 Pennsylvania Turbine. It is truly magnificent!
