Re: Baldwin Specification sheets

Is anyone else having trouble finding the locomotives they are looking for? Kinda... There are misspellings in the index file, the page numbers can't be read in some of the books, some pages are missing (e.g. South Pacific Coast #13). Make sure you have the correct name for the railroad at the time...

Re: Lima Locomotive Works - Rod engine question.

Brian, "Lima: The History" has been ordered through Amazon. That's really a book I should have had already. As far as I know Lima got into the rod engine business after the narrow gauge boom, and they were generally a more expensive builder, so it makes some sense that there's not much in the way of...

Lima Locomotive Works - Rod engine question.

Can anyone name a Pacific Narrow Gauge railroad that bought side-rod engines from Lima?

I know of a couple from the US East coast, but I think only shays were ordered in the West and along the Pacific Rim. :?:

Biles-Coleman Lumber Company of Omak, WA

I was doing some odds'n'ends research when I came across this image in the National Archives from the Biles-Coleman Lumber Company: Loaded log train on narrow gauge railroad of Biles Colemena Lumber Co. at "big landing" on the old Omak Creek unit. I would have loved to have been there when that "Hys...

They have the technical specifications and some history on the early Mason's along with some nice technical drawings. I have a higher quality version of these scans available a...

Re: Baldwin Specification sheets

A quick note;

Beware of misspelled railroad names in the DeGolyer index PDFs

Among other mistakes::
Uintah #30 & #11 are noted as Unitah #30 and #11
Uintah #51 is noted as Vintah #51.

Re: Baldwin Specification sheets

But the questions are: Photos of E&P #7? And what happened to the locomotive? After the line was repaired (after the washout and the foreclosure) the engine was noted in the Eureka Sentential as being steamed up and leaving the Eureka enginehouse. But we have no idea as to what happened to it. Ther...
