The world’s first and only
locomotive with a 6-8-6 wheel configuration was introduced in
1944.  The Pennsy Railroad’s 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.   Orginally 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

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 S2’s efficiency further.  

This iconic Pennsylvania
Railroad steam locomotive is a must-have for every series PRR steam
collector.  We are offering the S2 in three
prototypical  variations:  As-Delivered without smoke
deflectors, equipped with small smoke deflectors, and equipped with
large smoke deflectors (the longest lasting appearance).  We
are also offering one S2 Turbine in a Tuscan Red fantasy paint scheme,
and one painted a brass color so the entire engine has a varnished
brass appearance.  All of the models have hand-crafted brass
boilers, cabs, and tender bodies, and die cast locomotive and tender
chassis.   Each model comes with our Paragon4 DC/DCC
Sound system with synchronized puffing smoke and integral GoPack
