Baldwin Locomotive Works have built the only three examples of the 2-8-8-8-2 articulated locomotive for the Erie Railroad between 1914 and 1916. The first was named Matt H. Shay after a beloved employee of that railroad. All three, as well as the lone 2-8-8-8-4 shared the nickname "Triplex" because of their three sets of driving wheels.
