History

Please note, we mistook this engine for the extremely similar RF16 Shark. Shark it obviously is, but the earlier DR-4-4-1500, not the later RF16. Mechanically, it is the same unit as the Central Railroad of New Jersey DR-4-4-1500 Babyface engines, but with Shark styling that the Pennsy ushered in with their Raymon Lowery designed DR-6-4-2000.
