This power was only exceeded by the PRR Q-2 Class (7,987HP). By contrast the UP Big Boy could generate a maximum of 6,200 drawbar HP." Specifics - H-8 class, 67" drivers, impressive 260 psi boiler pressure, 22.5x33" cylinders, engine weight of 771,300 lb, massive tractive effort of 110,211 lb, scrapped between 1952-56. Arthur B.
