By World War I, the 0-4-0 wheel arrangement had largely slipped into the history books, and six- or eight-coupled steam switchers were the norm on most railroads. The self-proclaimed Standard Railroad of the World, however - stubbornly independent and known for its home-grown motive power - in 1916 began building perhaps the most modern 0-4-0s ever constructed. Built in the Pennsylvania Railroad's Juniata shops, the A5s was, in Al Staufer's words, "a junior edition of mammoth road power," with modern appliances and machinery details never before seen on an 0-4-0. The "s" in the engine's name stood for "superheater;" other modern features included Walschaert valve gear and power reverse. The large vertical tanks under the cab were air brake reservoirs. A sloping rear tender deck allowed better visibility for backup moves, and the locomotive of course had the Pennsy's characteristic Belpaire firebox.
