Simplicity and reliability are the keynotes of the design of the new single-phase a-c electric locomotives for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Basic components tried and proved by years of successful operation were deliberately chosen and combined into a new design. Full advantage was taken of the latest improvements in materials and manufacturing processes to create a motive power unit of high capacity which is economical to build, operate, and maintain.
