## About This Content
The distinctive Baldwin RF-16 with ‘Sharknose’ design comes to Train
Simulator, from Digital Train Model.
In 1948, Baldwin Locomotive Works began to apply a new ‘Sharknose’ body style
to its cab unit diesel locomotives, partly to differentiate Baldwin
locomotives from its competitors, but also to distance the new locomotives
from early Baldwin diesels that were plagued with mechanical problems.
The ‘Sharknose’ style was inspired by the Pennsylvania Railroad’s T1 class
duplex steam locomotive, some of which were built by Baldwin. The first
locomotives to receive the new styling were the Baldwin DR-6-4-20, which was
carried through subsequent Baldwin locomotives, including the RF-16.
The RF-16 quickly gained a reputation as a reliable and rugged locomotive with
heavy pulling power. Many of the units saw service hauling coal drags, where
these characteristics were put to best use.
A total of 109 cab-equipped A units were built between November 1950 and May
1953, along with 51 cabless booster B units, for three main railroads – the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, New York Central Railroad and the Pennsylvania
Withdrawals of the Class began in the early 1960s and by 1971, all but two of
the units had been sold for scrap – units 1205 and 1216 were to be scrapped in
1974, but were saved by the Delaware and Hudson Railroad for freight services
until 1981. The two units have since reportedly been stored on the Escanaba
and Lake Superior Railroad, inside a warehouse that is inaccessible to the
