Five of what are to be the largest
heaviest and most powerful freight
locomotives in the world are being
constructed for the Fenusvlvrnia Kail
road company in Altoona Pa. The
first one is to be completed this month
They are to be used to haul ore from
tbe Jakes to Pittsburg:. They will not
differ materially in style from the
freight locomotives used at present on
tbe Pennsylvania railroad but the
hauling capacity is to be double.
Each of tbe steel boiler of tne new
locomotives is tobe 72 inches in dia
meter and 24 feet long. The 6teel
in the barrel of the boilers is to be
thirteen-sixteenths of an inch thick
The sheets are to be fastened with
1-inch rivets. -Each boiler is to contain
318 flues to generate 212 pounds of
steam and to weigh 42150 pounds. An
idea of tbe size of the boiler may be
obtained from a eo-rparison of one
with an ordinary boiler. The laver
has steel plates of from three-eight.- to
one-naif inca in thlcicnes wei -n&
from 18 COO to 22.000 pounds cont i
from 180 to 200 flues and generates 130
pounds of ttr aT).
The new locomotives are to be built
on what is kron as the eonsolida'. fl
pattern four wheels connected w ith
pocd truck. Each is to weisrh wb- r-
completed ninety-six tons. The wb- el
centers are cast of steel and the f u I
diameter of the wheel i 56 inches. Tne
cylinders are to have a 22-inch by 23-
inch fctroke and tre guides are to be of
steel two b.'ir. The tank on the tender
s construct- d of nve-sixteentbs-incb
steel and is to have a capac.ty of 4500
New cars a"e to be made for the ser-
vice. Erh is to be equipped with air
brakes and eve-y appliance to insure
fetf . A tr-m crew will not be need
ed. Tbe engineer will manage the
rain. In that respect the train is sim
ilar to a passenger train which is con
trolled almost entirely by tbe driver of
tne locomotive. When tne big loco
motives are in service with their es-
pecially prepared complement of heavy
tonnage cars the rata on ores from tbe
lakes it is expected Is to be out down
as low as 25c a ton. The present rate
is now 40c a ton.
