The Erie Railroad conducted a test at Binghamton, N. Y., on July 24, 1914, of the pulling power of the new Centipede locomotive, which weighs 410 tons and has twenty-four driving wheels. The officials in charge kept adding car after car of coal to the train until it consisted of 250 fully loaded steel cars with a total weight of 21,000 tons. The locomotive pulled this train forty miles at the rate of fifteen miles an hour.
