Ed,

Welcome to the topic.

Search is our friend.  I entered "T1 Trust" in the OGR Search Box 'Contains All Of These Words' and got 4 pages of hits.

There's a boatload of previous history on the Forum.  You may want to check some of it out:

     T1 Trust Acquires Tender (8/20/17) | hullmat991

     PRR T1 Steam Locomotive Trust (10/16/13) | John Meixel

     T1 trust. The right locomotive built at the right time by the right people for the wrong reasons? (7/20/17) | southern Railfan

     Why a T1???? (4/7/14) | superwarp1

     Pennsy Lovers-What Rings Your Bell? (1/7/15) | PRR8976



Hopefully she makes it all the way through the restoration.  We're looking forward to the outcome.

The "rigid frame" will not be an issue, as it wasn't an issue with the largest 4-8-4 steam locomotives, such as the Santa Fe 2900 class, the UP 800 class, the SP 4400 class, nor the NYC 6000 class.

So the length of this locomotive isn't an issue even though it's not articulated? I connected the dots myself and thought it would be a tricky problem in some curves.

That's great news for where it can run!

I saw a T1 pulling a passenger train heading in to Baltimore in about 1950 or '51 at Meadowbrook which is about 5 miles out of Baltimore's station while I was riding the school bus.

Many I have told me I am wrong - the PRR never ran T1's in to Baltimore. Really? The T1 was tested between Wilmington and Baltimore when it was brand new. It was evidently turned on the wye at Orangeville which was the Pennsy's engine terminal for Baltimore at the time.

If I am incorrect about the locomotive being a T1 then it must have been a K6 (which the PRR never had).

Ed,

Mike, the lok is not a restore, it is a from the ground up build. There might be a few donor parts on the lok. The tender will undergo a restoration.
