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. (Some content excerpted
from the WWW). 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.
