Baldwin produced the famous “Centipede” diesel locomotives during 1945-48, and sold them to three railroads (SAL, NdM, and PRR). The Centipedes were very large, 91 1/2 feet long, for single units as operated on SAL and NdM, and 183 feet long for semi-permanently coupled pairs as operated on the PRR. Each unit contained two 1500 horsepower diesel motors, so a pair contained four motors and totaled 6000 horsepower. Centipedes were heavy, totaling 1,200,000 pounds (1.2 million) for a pair, with more than 800,000 of those pounds carried by the 16 drivers.
These spectacular diesel locomotives are a MUST-HAVE for an Pennsy diesel modeler as well as anyone who wants to showcase unique, premium quality on his layout. Don’t miss these limited run diesel gems. Preorder today!
