I remember seeing these as a little kid.

Whenever the CPR Drake St shops in Vancouver had difficulty keeping one running they'd send the particular unit over to Victoria's Russel's roundhouse. The mechanics there had tuning the units down to a fine art. Interestingly they could be tuned to run well for low idle/switching or power on the road, but not both.

Only the former shops seen in the background. The locomotive was quickly scrapped even though a serious, and almost successful, attempt to preserve it was made. Nearby is some neglected rolling stock and a steam engine, seen just above & left of the thumbtack on the image attached. This is also the approx position of the photographer looking to the 4 o'clock direction to get that Baldwin pic.

Good stuff, thanks. Seems like logging operators were fond of Baldwins.

I don't believe so. Conrail seemed to take the oddball power from it's predecessor lines and either send them to scrap, or sell to shortlines.
>>
>>1261220
The SP was so classy, that they even tiger striped the air tanks.
>>
>>1320755
WAS classy, they stopped giving a fuck by the 1980s. Some of the dirtiest locomotives to ride the rails by then.
>>
>>1324283
Desu, I would have been so comfy on the extra board back on the Shasta division in the 80s. Surely better than what the yellow and gray borg offers railroaders now.
>>
What's with this board and glorifying failures of transportation? Concorde, defunct manufacturers, Milwaukee Road, Rock Island, etc.
>>
>>1327579
The love for the Milwaukee Road and Rock Island and Concorde go beyond this board.

t. a Rock Island and Concorde fan years before I discovered 4chan.
>>
>>
>>
>>1327579
Railfans have always been drawn to unusual equipment and lines that were financial failures but ran through great scenery like MILW, NYO&W, Rio Grande Southern, etc.
>>
>>1330746
This. Who doesn't like the RGS?
>pic related
>>
>>1331841
The Rio Grande Southern was one of the greatest railroads ever. I’ve driven along most of the old ROW and seen various locomotives and rolling stock in museums. I’ve heard they have some Galloping Geese running again.
>>
>>1332109
They run one regularly at the Colorado RR Museum. I got to ride it last year. Breddy gud
