The 4-6-6T Suburban Tank Engine, was primarily used in commuter service, or other applications where short distances were required and there was little room for the locomotive to turn around. The water and the coal bins were built into the extended frame of the locomotive, so it was possible to these tank engines to go in either direction easily. Built in 1928 for the Boston & Albany to haul commuter trains to and from Boston, these locomotives could accelerate quickly from the closely spaced station stops and operate efficiently in reverse. Later transferred to the New York Central, this workhorse engine continued in commuter service. Other railroads also utilized these versatile tank engines in variety of services, in addition to commuter runs.
