Baldwin produced the famous “Centipede” diesel locomotives during 1945-48, and sold them to three
railroads (SAL, NdM and PRR). The Centipedes were very large, 91½ feet long for single units as
operated on SAL and NdM, and 183 feet long for semi-permanently-coupled A-A pairs as operated on
the PRR!
Each unit contained two 1500 horsepower diesel motors, so a pair contained four motors and totaled
6000 horsepower. Centipedes were very heavy, totaling 1,200,000 pounds for a pair, with more than
800,000 of those pounds carried by the 16 drivers. These spectacular diesel locomotives are a musthave
for any Pennsy diesel modeler as well as anyone who wants to showcase unique, premium quality
on his layout. Don’t miss these limited run diesel gems.

* - Occasionally Broadway Limited  will produce models that never existed but we believe modelers will
enjoy.  The Union Pacific Centipede is one such model. The Union Pacific
had intended to order the Centipede, but never ended up taking delivery of the units.
