MTH Premier 20-3117-1: 2-10-0 Decapod Steam Engine w/Proto-Sound 2.0
By the 1910s, the Pennsylvania Railroad was hauling coal and ore by the tons, and it sought a more efficient way to do so than double-heading 2-8-2 engines. Thus was born the monstrous I Class 2-10-0 Decapod. It dwarfed all previous 2-10-0s, weighing in at 386,100 pounds, with a power output 41% higher and steam consumption 12% lower than the Mikados that were previously assigned to coal and ore duty. Pennsy heartily approved of the new design and ultimately had the Baldwin and Juniata shops build 598 Class I1s. These hulking engines were designed specifically for use in the mountainous Allegheny region of western Pennsylvania, and they hauled freight through that area like nothing the PRR had seen before. The typical assignment called for two Decapods at each end of every freight train, and despite their enormous size and weight, they were allowed to move at up to fifty miles per hour. M.T.H. is proud to bring the ground-shaking power of the Pennsylvania 2-10-0 to your railroad.
