This the front engine of PRR 4-4-4-4 class T-1 #5523 at Winter St. PRR's "duplex-drive", streamlined sheetmetal, poppet valves, disk Boxpok drivers, roller bearings and all the other sophisticated parts said "ultimate steam."

Nice detail visible. Too bad they weren't given a real chance to prove themselves with diesels showing up.
