Re: Baldwin Specification sheets

David, Thank you for the heads up. I was unaware that DeGolyer was doing this! I lost track of how long it took me to down load all of the current available reels, and they are nice.

Re: Consolidating the Baldwin 8-18C Data

I was asked to compile a list of all the 8-18C drawings that I knew of, and I've finally gotten around to doing it: Baldwin 8-18C - Surviving Drawing List

Re: Colusa & Lake RR

Brian, Andrew, I wanted to thank you both for the links to the CSU Chico photos. This morning was the first time I checked this thread and found the CSU Chico links working properly. I think there's enough information in those photos to make a fairly accurate map of Sites and the sidings at a couple...

Re: Gazos Creek Railroad

Not much else to go on just yet. There was a Gazos Creek Lumber Co. out in that area. Actually several lumber companies. A Brief history can be found in this Costal Watershed Council document.

Re: Morenci Southern / United States Potash #3

Yes, I have a batch conversion program that'll take care of the size and format in one go. When I get home this evening I'll convert the photos and send you an e-mail. I'll also double check to see if any have enough overlap with other photos that I can cull a few from the herd without loosing detai...

Re: Morenci Southern / United States Potash #3

OK, I just go back from Pomona. The good news is that in just the past couple of months the #3 had it's jacketing removed and all the "A" stuff removed from the boiler! The bad news is that she's looking naked in all the photos I took, no jacket, no air tanks, no air pump, etc. More good news is tha...
