Boasting nearly 3,300 horsepower, the 141P was among the most efficient steam locomotives in the world thanks to their compound design. Burning 30% less fuel and using 40% less water than their 141R counterparts should have endeared them to the railroads' accountants, but they were unable to compete with the 141R when it came to reliability attested by the fact that all 318 units were scrapped while the 141R remained in service until the end of the steam era in 1975.

Interestingly, the more common 1,340 141R units were ordered and built from the shops of Lima Locomotive Works, American Locomotive Company, Baldwin Locomotive Works, Montreal Locomotive Works and the Canadian Locomotive company at a rate of nearly three locomotives per day. Sixteen of the 141R's never made it to France, sinking in a violent storm off the coast of Newfoundland in 1947. A seventeenth unit was lost in Marseille Harbor.

The 141P marks the third French locomotive to be released by M.T.H. Electric Trains following on the heels of the 231 Chapelon and Class 241A. Outfitted with Proto-Sound 3.0, the 141P can operate conventionally under AC or DC power or in command mode under DCC or DCS control. Equipped with high-quality digital sound, LED contant voltage lighting, hi-rail or fine scale wheels and synchronized puffing smoke timed to the drive wheels' revolutions ensures that the 141P will be a favorite on any O scale model railroad.
