Class: old class L
Road No.: PRR 4
Status: Retired by 1891; scrapped

This engine was designed for handling trains in both directions without turning. It was so used in short turnaround service out of both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. It had the “Altoona type” boiler, similar to those used on Class I (H1) and Class M (B3). The cylinders were 17x24 inches and the driving wheels were 62 inches. It was provided with some sort of power reverse gear. The No. 4 was the only engine of this class built. In 1895 the letter “L” was used to designate a new and entirely different design of engine, which under the new classification, adopted in 1897, became Classes D16 and D16A.

Bld Date: 8/1883
Class: D6 (old class K)
Road No.: PRR 1070
Status: Scrapped 11/1906

Records conflict on this engine. Edson states it was converted to class D7. Information on the back of the photo states it was converted to class D6b with the removal of 78 inch drivers and 68 inch drivers installed and that about 1894 the sand box was removed from behind mud guards to ahead of drivers and placed atop the boiler in position occupied by bell, which was moved forward. The sand box was the same as used on class R (H3). The smoke box change was also made on classes N (D8), O (D8a/D10), and P (D11/D12/D13/D14).
