NEW MODEL ANNOUNCEMENT !
Updated Tuesday, May 01, 2018



   5517 was built by the Pennsy's own Altoona shops in 1946 and as such was one of the last T1s to receive the modified front end and all the subsequent changes...   She remained under steam right up until 1951.. . As you can see she is missing the cam box covers on her cylinders, a detail never before captured in model form...

   Number 5536 was a Baldwin Locomotive Works product.  She was a very special locomotive:  She was the star in the story "Last Chance" by John Crosby...  His tale of guts, grit and speed, set the T1 apart from other locomotives and it made her a legend...
   She was built in 1946 and remained unchanged until September of 1948...  Most all her shrouding stayed intact up until 1948, the exception being a piece of shrouding over the engineer's side rear cylinder... ( Most of the T1s lost major streamling pieces through shopping and repairs...)
   Number 5536 was a wanderer... Originally assigned to the PRR's famed "Middle Division" in Pennsylvania, she could be spotted in Chicago, Fort Wayne, Cincinnati, and even St. Louis!

The 12th T1 built by Altoona, 5511 was a little over 5 months old when she got a "face lift"... When she rolled out of the shop she had a new front cowling with steps beside it, redesigned side skirting, a raised Keystone number plate with raised bolt heads*, a modified pilot arrangement and new number boards... She retained all of her as built traits from there back to the tender. A must for the Pennsy fan! *the only T1 to have this detail... This never before produced version will be the most accurate model of 5511 ever produced, in any scale...

5519 was turned out by PRR's Altoona Works in 1946...
Unique to all "as built" T1s was her a fully shrouded tender with details never before captured in any scale. Full "Train Phone" antenna and receiver coil details. Sliding shrouds, just like the prototypes, to ac-cess the water hatches.

After 1946, many of the T1s got the modified front end and Baldwin built 5529 was not an exception. Besides the front end modification, she received: An auxiliary headlight mounted in the front cowling; A redesigned sand box; Her whistle was removed from the streamlining and placed near the sand box; She got wind deflectors on both cab and tender...

   When #5549 was rolled out of the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1946, she not only was the last T1 built, she was the last steam locomotive to ever be built by Baldwin for the Pennsylvania Railroad...
   Unlike the Altoona builds, number 5549's Baldwin siblings had a very unique feature: a piece of sheet metal over the second set of cylinders as can be seen in this photo... This was added to continue the streamlining under her running board and has never been modeled until these models from GPM are released!
