With the advent of the R&P came expansion into the hills of Pennsylvania, and that meant heavier and more powerful engines. In 1881, five Consolidation 2-8-0s.

Brooks, these engines were the pride of the company.In 1901, they were supplanted by the more-capable 4-4-2. The last of these came on board in 1909. The Atlantic class was fast. And capable when coupled to a three-car train. As train length was increased and heavier steel cars replaced the wood cars, the Atlantics were, in turn, replaced by the heavier 4-6-2.
