Baldwin Specification sheets

Post by Randy Hees » Wed Jun 23, 2010 5:23 pm

I have been scanning some sheets, and Andrew has been busy posting them to the images area of the site... we now have most of the SPC locos, and the three Sonoma Valley locomotives up.

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 you know which book to search.
An extremely valuable resource.

David,

Could you please provide a link or information on where to find the Baldwin Specification sheets on the SMU / DeGolyer website?


Thanks,

Curtis F.

*EDIT*

Never mind, finally found it: http://digitalcollections.smu.edu/cdm4/ ... OX=1&REC=1

My hat goes off to the DeGolyer for making this resource available online.

I am currently in the process of pulling out the sheets relevant to the roads already on the site. The large volume sizes can be restrictive to a lot of people, this should make them more accessible for quick reference. Over the coming weeks more and more of these will be available in the gallery.

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. They're scanned in as good as they are on the microfilm. Only way to do it better would be to scan the actual books.

My printer was going over-time last night popping out spec sheets.

Till last night I didn't know that the Eureka & Palisaides #7 was a sister to the C&C 4-4-0s. It even mentions on the spec sheet to reference the C&C #1-4 spec sheet for details. 8-)


Cheers,

Curtis F.

My long-time friend Dave Garcia had told me that. Sometime back he managed to obtain a copy of the class numbers. 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.

There are no photos nor disposition known about the #7 ??

What date was it last reported on the railroad?


Very interested,

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.

My friend Dave Garcia had sought out all manner of photos of the E&P/E-N among some other Nevada narrow gauges. He says that neither he nor any of his correspondents have turned up a photo of #7.

The locomotive would have departed about 1912.
