By the 1920s the Northern Pacific Railroad needed bigger passenger locomotives. With the help of the American Locomotive Company's design engineers, NP designed a new locomotive with a massive firebox that had a 115 square foot grate area supported by a four wheel trailing truck. It was the first locomotive with a 4-8-4 wheel arrangement. ALCO delivered the first of 12 of these new locomotives in December of 1926, with the balance arriving early in 1927. In 1938, eight Class A-3s (road numbers 2660 through 2667) were delivered from Baldwin. These heavy "Northerns" had 77 drivers, 28 x 31 cylinders, a boiler pressure of 260 psi, a tractive effort of 69,800 lbs and a weight of 491,800 pounds. There are no surviving Northern Pacific "Northerns".
