Roundhouse 56510-273 PRR Class H6 2-8-0 Consolidation Locomotive #966
"By the turn of the century PRR had progressed beyond 2-6-0 to the 2-8-0. The first modern Consolidation was the H6, with 22" x 28" cylinders and 56" drivers, first built in 1899. In 1901 the design was changed to include a wide firebox over the rear drivers, and in 1905 another change added piston valves and Walschaerts valve gear. Mass production of the type ended in 1908, but ten more were built between 1909 and 1913. Most of the nearly 2000 were scrapped by the mid-1930s." (From "The Guide to North American Steam Locomotives" compiled by the late George H. Drury,)
Built from upgraded and re-manufactured vintage original Roundhouse tooling and decked out with modern can motors and razor sharp graphics, these late production Roundhouse steamers are some of the quietest and smoothest running locomotives ever produced.
