The worlds first and only locomotive with a
6-8-6 wheel configuration was introduced in 1944. The PRR S2
direct-drive steam turbine powered locomotive was a unique experiment
in motive power. Its six-wheel leading truck, eight drive wheels and
six-wheel trailing truck made for a massive running platform that was
quite efficient when the S2 was at speed. Originally, the S2 was to be
a 4-8-4, but wartime restrictions on the usage of lighter steel alloys
forced the use of heavier alloys – eventually driving the weight of the
entire locomotive to need larger leading and trailing trucks.

The S2 is outfitted with two steam turbines.
One for each direction of travel. The large boiler sports a Belpaire
firebox and the turbines exhaust was channeled through four pipes in
the smoke box. A Worthington-style feedwater heater honed the S2s
efficiency further.

This iconic Pennsylvania
steam locomotive is a must-have for every serious PRR steam collector.
We are offering the S2 in four different ways – As Delivered (with no
smoke deflectors), with Small Smoke Deflectors and with Large Smoke
Deflectors. And for those who enjoy the varnished brass colored unit
which truly makes each and every detail pop, that is also available in
limited supply. The S2s completely unique look and mechanism makes any
layout shine! Preorder today.
