Robin Barnes, Railway Art and History

The long-wheelbase eight-wheeler, with three-point suspension, able to cope with the roughest of track, could safely be said to be the locomotive that built America. Surely there could be no finer example than the gorgeously decorated Pennsylvania Railroad No.134 Tiger, a Baldwin product of 1856. One can well imagine how the sight and sound of this locomotive would have brought reassurance to the isolated communities spread along the wayside. The details are taken from a beautiful contemporary coloured engraving of Tiger by L N Rosenthal of Philadelphia.
