Baldwin produced the famous "Centipede" diesel locomotives during 1945-48, and sold them to three railroads (SAL, NdM and PRR). The Centipedes were very large, 91 feet long for single units as operated on SAL and NdM, and 183 feet long for semi-permanently-coupled A-A pairs as operated on the PRR!

Each unit contained two 1500 horsepower diesel motors, so a pair contained four motors and totaled 6000 horsepower. Centipedes were very heavy, totaling 1,200,000 pounds for a pair, with more than 800,000 of those pounds carried by the 16 drivers. These spectacular diesel locomotives are a must-have for any Pennsy diesel modeler as well as anyone who wants to showcase unique, premium quality on his layout. Dont miss these limited run diesel gems.
