4-4-4 "Jubilee" Locomotives in the USA

The 4-4-4 wheel arrangement was trialled by the Philadelphia and Reading Railway in the USA. Baltimore and Ohio also experimented with this design. Neither created a successful 4-4-4 locomotive. The Canadian Pacific had more success. In the USA these were called "Readings". In Canada they were called "Jubilees".
