PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD K4s CLASS PACIFIC


A PHOTOGRAPHIC RECOLLECTION OF ALL 425 PRR K4s CLASS LOCOMOTIVES

CLASS K4s 4-6-2 Specs: Built 1914-1928 ** Cylinders-27"x28" ** Drivers-80" ** Steam Pressure-205 lbs. ** Total Weight-308,890 lbs. ** Tractive Force-44,460 lbs. ** Total Built-425 ** Last Seen in Regular Operation-K4 #5351 in Nov. 1957.

********************

In 1914 the Pennsylvania Railroad built, what many people believe to be, one of the most famous Locomotives to have ever roamed the rails, the K4s Class 4-6-2 Pacific. It was so successful that the Pennsy had 424 more built. The original K4s, #1737 of 1914, was not actually designed from the success of it's predecessors, the .................PRR Class K2
4-6-2 Pacifics of 1910-1911 or the................ PRR Class K3
4-6-2 Pacifics of 1913, but rather from, the important, 1 and only Fat Boilered .................................... PRR Class K29
4-6-2 Pacific of 1911. They were built in both the PRR's own Shops in Altoona, Pa and at The Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pa. Through out their years of service, they were basically the same Locomotives they were when built. There were however some modifications and upgrades that were applied during years of active service. These included experimental valve gears, stokers, tender upgrades, post war modifications and one of my favorites, the Streamlined Shroudings of the late 1930's and early 1940's. But still, overall the K4s's remained as the PRR Builders intended, a very dependable work horse. Many lasted into the mid 1950's. Some even lasted longer than the locomotives that were designed and built to take their place, ie: the T-1 4-4-4-4's of the 1940's.

As you may know there are two K4s's, #1361 and #3750 that survived. Both are pictured just below during their years in regular service. Number 1361 is presently being rebuilt from the ground up in the shops at Steamtown in Scranton Pa. Major work has already been accomplished. A new Backhead Plate, Smoke Box, Boiler Repairs and the like have been completed. With more Grant Funding in hand it is hopeful she will be completed and see the rails again sometime in the year 2001. The other remaining K4s, #3750, is on static display at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg, Pa. She has been cosmeticaly restored. That is it. Only 2 of the 425 that were built.

#1361 #3750

********************

I have assembled a rather large collection of PRR Photographs. Many are of PRR Class K4s Locomotives. I will attempt to list these locomotives here. I will include many of the variations as mentioned above as well. So when I am done roughly 440 photos will be on file here. Enjoy the pics!
