The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) T1 Steam Locomotive Trust is a non-profit organization formed for the express purpose of constructing PRR T1 5550, the fifty-third locomotive of its class. The goal is to provide mainline excursion service, and to set the World Speed Record for a steam locomotive. The PRR T1 represents the pinnacle of steam locomotive design in the United States. These locomotives had the capability of achieving speeds in excess of 120 mph, and anecdotal reports indicate that speeds of up to 140 mph were attained. In all, 52 class T1 locomotives were produced, 25 at the PRR's Altoona shops and 27 at the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia. Sadly, not a single example of this magnificent machine escaped the scrapper's torch. The production of PRR T1 5550 will fill a large gap in historical locomotive preservation. Perhaps more importantly, this locomotive will inject new life blood into an aging heritage fleet. Most US built steam locomotives operating today are over 60 years old. Wear and tear are taking their toll. Efforts such as this one, to create a powerful new machine, will become increasingly important if steam excursion service is to be present in another 60 years. If you would like more information on the Trust, and it's activities, please visit our website, http://prrt1steamlocomotivetrust.org/ and like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/t1locomotive . Experience has shown, that in a project like this, a large number of small donations can achieve success. If you would like to see this project come to fruition, please consider purchasing an Official 5550 T Shirt. These t shirts are being sold by the Trust, and 100% of the proceeds go to the Trust. The listing is for one t shirt, as shown in the photos. Buyer picks size (S M Lg XL XXL XXXL) If we can all make a small donation, we can all enjoy the thunder as 5550, phoenix-like, arises from the molten metal of the foundry to fly at 140 mph, shrouded in Vulcan's billowing cape.
