Between 1950 and
1953, Baldwin Locomotive Works produced 160 1,600-horsepower
four-axle carbody locomotives under the designation "RF-16" (Road
Freight, 1,600 horsepower). The RF16 was an
upgrade of Baldwin's earlier DRS-4-4-1500 model, which was
available in both "babyface" and the Raymond Loewy-designed "sharknose"
styles. While the Sharks were unable to successfully compete
with EMD's F-series, these distinctive locomotives captured the
hearts of railfans with their menacing profile.
The RF16 proved to
be the final carbody-style locomotive built by Baldwin, but its
legacy endures today, due in part to efforts in the 1970s by the
Delaware & Hudson railroad, which purchased the two remaining
RF16 "A" units, restored them and operating them in freight
revenue service until 1978. The two remaining units are now
reportedly in private storage.
Locomotive Works is proud to present the RF16 model for MSTS.
