The S 160 The Yank or Rattlesnake were originally war locomotives of the United States Army Transportation Corps (USATC). These locomotives were planned to be used worldwide and therefore had an English clearance gauge, one of the smallest for standard gauge railways. 2,120 units were built, making this class one of the most built locomotives in the world. The name Rattlesnake comes from the characteristic rattling when driving.
