1905 Pennsylvania Railroad
NO. 1223 4-4-0
THE D16 Class of the P.R.R. represents the acme of American-type development on the System and the last of their kind. The class includes a number of variations from D16 through a,b,c,d, to D16sb, the 1223 exemplifying the ultimate in design. Before the advent of the Atlantics, these 4-4-0's pulled the new Pennsylvania Special in 1902 on a twenty-hour schedule between New York and Chicago making an excellent on-time record. The 1223 is being preserved, although some of the more modern fittings have altered its original appearance slightly.
