contains a collection of photographs from the NYCSHS archives. It provides a small number of the several
thousand photos that have been scanned by NYCSHS Archive volunteers over many
years. The majority of archive photo
collection comes from the many photos saved when the NYCS merged to become the
Penn Central Railroad. Additional photos
came from individual donors of their collections to the NYCSHS.
The Baldwin Locomotive Works
was an American builder of railroad locomotives. It was originally located in
Philadelphia, and later moved to nearby Eddystone, Pennsylvania. Although the
company was very successful as the largest producer of steam locomotives, its
transition to the production of diesels was far less so. Later, when the early
demand for diesel locomotives to replace steam tapered off, Baldwin could not
compete in the marketplace. It stopped producing locomotives in 1956 and went
out of business in 1972, having produced over 70,000 locomotives, the vast
majority powered by steam. In 1956, after 125 years of continuous locomotive production, Baldwin closed
most of its Eddystone plant and ceased producing locomotives.
Baldwin produced the DES-10, DES-12, DES-20, and DRSP-3, and DRSP-8 for the NYC. They build a total of 60 diesel locomotives for the NYC. All classes are included in the CD of JPEG images.
This product is another of the wonderful historical documents produced by the NYCSHS archive volunteers.
