45171 to 45220

  • Axle: 1'D
  • Total quantity: 50
  • First year: 1942
  • Manufacturer: ALCO, Baldwin, Lima
  • Type: USA TC S.160

During WWII, US Army transportation corps ordered a standard gauge engine for war needs. The design known as S160 was suitable for worldwide service and especially for Europe. A staggering 2120 engines were built by the American industry between 1942 and 1945. Most of them were sent to the UK and then dispatched to the continent after the 1944 invasion. Large batches were sent also to North Africa and Italy. India and USSR received also some S160. When the war was over, the S160 became useless and the USA TC started to dispose of them in 1946/1947. 50 engines were delivered to Turkey in 1947.

The S160 had a very simple design in accordance with military requirements: cheap, strong and reliable. They were not intended for a long life span. They complied with British and continental loading gauge and they had a right hand drive. They had Westhinghouse air brake. The air compressor could be placed either in front of the firebox or on the side of the firebox should the loading gauge allow it.
