Re: Austin City Railroad "Mules' Relief" in color

Hi Randy, No not me in the library although I wish it was! Dont know who that was although I've published a lot in local magazines about our liveries and imports over the last few years, and always referenced the library, so it may well be working! I will contact you about a few more motor cards, I'...

Re: Austin City Railroad "Mules' Relief" in color

Hi Randy, This is great stuff. I've done some work on the steam dummies for New South Wales in Australia, which were built between 1879 and 1890, to several different designs. Most of them were from 1879 and the early 1880s as 0-4-0s with a few being 0-4-2. Virtually all of them are also Motor Style...

Re: 8-22C - C&C, SPNG, E&P

Hi Curtis, Interestingly our Queensland 8-18 1/2 C 4-4-0s, built in 3 batchesd between 1881 and 1885 had the same 'cradle' chassis design as you show in your detail. I drew up these Queensland 4-4-0s earlier in the year based on the surviving erection card held at DeGolyer, look at the Baldwin style...

Re: Baldwin Specification sheets

Further to the uploading of all the Baldwin specification books at DeGolyer, they have also scanned and made available the William Halsey water colour drawings of the locomotives 1860s-1870s. These are an extraordinary set of drawings painted at the time, and sometimes 10-15 years after and are a go...

Re: Baldwin Specification sheets

Folks, this may have been mentioned, Cynthia at the DeGolyer has now scanned and uploaded most of the Baldwin Specifications from the late 1860s onward, and can be downloaded from the DeGolyer web site. Each specification volume is downloaded in entirety so best to download the master lists first so...

Re: Looking for info on a Porter-Bell Loco

Oh I forgot to mention, the tender drawing is specific to an 1878 2-4-0, class B, however very similar to those used on the Type C.
The 2-4-0 was Const No. 323, 12/1878, built for the Port Huron & Northwestern Rwy #1 'D.B. Harrington'.
This is the 2-4-0 that is preserved today noted above.

David.

Re: Looking for info on a Porter-Bell Loco

The other Porter Bell survivor is the 2-4-0, not unlike the engine on the BRB&L, a pretty typical type B http://www.steamlocomotive.info/vlocomotive.cfm?Display=659 Other that the drawings and info in Bruce's book, I've not seen any original drawings of the type C. However I do have a Porter Tender ...

Hi DSP Fan, With regard to the NCNG locos, I can confirm the following, with the Baldwin spec sheets in front of me: NCNG #1 - Lake & Gold, style 1....she only just made the date for Lake colour in 1875..had she been built a month or two earlier she would have been wine style 1. The spec has Wine & ...
