PRR #4485 Class 90F82 Tender
The Tender currently displayed with PRR I1sa 4483 is the one that was delivered with the locomotive by the Pennsy to the Westinghouse Air Brake Company in Wilmerding PA. in 1963. The tender was built as class 90F82 and numbered 4485, so we are pretty sure that it was the tender that operated with engine #4483 when built by Baldwin. It held 9000 gallons of water and has a deck height of 82" above the railhead. When the locomotive and tender were delivered to WABCO, the automatic stoker was cut presumably to facilitate movement to the panel track it was displayed on for over 20 years. The interior was also gutted to store telephone relay equipment and the classic "doghouse" also removed. Over the many years of painting, someone repositioned the PENNSYLVANIA logo on the right side, to the rear of the tender. That oversite, along with some severe weathering have been corrected. The Society is working hard to preserve all of our "One of a Kind" pieces of rolling stock and below are some photo's of our latest endeavor.
PRR #6659 Class 210F75A Tender
The WNYRHS also owns a PRR "Coast to Coast" tender class 210F75A, removed from an M1 locomotive. Water and Coal capacity's respectively were 21000 gallons and 31 tons. It is believed to be one of the last "16" wheel tenders in existence. The
M1 at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is displayed with a 12 wheel tender. The tender was converted to one large water tank by the Pennsy before the HRCV Corp. recieved ownership before the Society. The stoker and the ubiquitous "Dog House" were removed presumably to facilitate its conversion, and when the Society gets it's permanent home, this will be the tender displayed with the I1sa. Tender is now in storage in North Collins, New York.
