Fleets of modern Diesel-electric, steam, and electric locomotives power the sleek passenger and heavy-duty freight trains which provide year-around fast and dependable transportation service on the far-flung lines of the Pennsylvania Railroad in 13 eastern and midwestern states.
The Pennsylvania, long a pioneer in the development of new and improved types of locomotives, each assigned to the services for which best adapted, now utilizes steam locomotives to provide half its transportation service, Diesel-electric locomotives to provide 32 per cent, and electric locomotives to provide 18 per cent. With its 4142 locomotives, the railroad is the largest operator of steam, Diesel-electric, and electric motive power. The Pennsylvania operates 26,000 miles of trackage connecting the eastern seaboard, from New York City to Norfolk, with the Great Lakes and the Mississippi Valley, and serving a host of important intermediate industrial and farming areas. Its main lines, and supplementary freight lines, are completely electrified between New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, and between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. West of Harrisburg and Baltimore trains are operated by steam or Diesel-electric power.
This booklet illustrates and briefly describes representative locomotives used in passenger and in freight service. It depicts the wide range of the latest type of motive power installed by the Pennsylvania to provide modern transportation service for the traveling public, industry, business and agriculture.
