## About This Content
The Baldwin Centipede was one of the more unusual and heavy diesel locomotives
in US railroading history, and now you can drive this heavyweight around the
Horseshoe Curve in Train Simulator.
Arguably ahead of its time in terms of design, the Baldwin DR-12-8-1500/2
gained the ‘Centipede’ name from its odd wheel arrangement, so called as it
was to have resembled the legs of a centipede. Given its heavy weight and
numerous wheel sets, the Centipede offered the highest tractive power of any
diesel locomotive in history.
In total, 54 units were produced and used in service by the Pennsylvania
Railroad, Seaboard Air Line Railroad and National Railway of Mexico between
1945 and 1948. The Centipede was capable of operating independently or coupled
in pairs, something the PRR successfully exploited to haul long passenger and
freight trains across its network, including around the famous Horseshoe
However, the Centipede was beset with problems and by the 1950s most railroads
had scrapped their fleet, due in part to their troublesome engines and the
damage they caused to the track from their heavy weight.
Developed by Reppo, the PRR Baldwin Centipede is available for Train Simulator
in Pennsylvania Railroad black livery. As well as a highly detailed cab
interior, the locomotive also features a fully-detailed engine start-up and
realistic engine scripting. Also included are a PRR baggage car and PRR dining
car, the latter with a finely detailed passenger view.
