Does anyone here like Baldwin/Lima-Hamilton diesels? Part 2Old thread here (not yet 404'd at the time of this threads creation!): >>848145
>>1261221>Radio equippedIt was truly a different time.
>>1261224Those were the days my friend!
>>1261219Hope they all get dumped in the lake in order to pay for a new bike trail.
>>1261237Thanks for the bump my cringey cyclist fren
Bump.>>848145 is gone.
>>1261416Every time you bump the thread you bring it closer to its death
>>1261219here's to another 3 years frens
>>1261219I 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.
These things are greatMerry Christmas thread!
>>1268049And a Happy New Year
>>1261220The little engine that could!
>>1271027Happy MLK Day.
These look like alcos
>>1277017Which ones? They collaborated on a few locomotives in the 1940s IIRC
>>1262935You>>1261220The guy your girls tells you not to worry about.
>trolley-equipped BaldwinsBring them back!
>>1268049>>1271027Happy President's Day
>>1287846Nice, wonder if it survived into Conrail!
>>1287846>Amerifat locomotives>literally bricks
>>1276952Happy St. Patrick's Day.
>>1298785Nice, is ANYTHING in this image still standing today?
>>1298873Only 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.
Another pic of a different Baldwin taken at Ladysmith, BC. You can follow it's restoration on FB /CP8000/.
>>1299430>>1299464Good stuff, thanks. Seems like logging operators were fond of Baldwins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RN-uI-fGOZ0
>>1261222What the fuck is this?
>>1307446Thanks, looks very unique.
How long exactly did the last thread last?
>>1312537More than 3 years iirc
>>1261237>cargo locos>bike trialShit bailt, man. At least get things that somewhat are connected to each other.
>>1290237I 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.
>>1261220The SP was so classy, that they even tiger striped the air tanks.
>>1320755WAS classy, they stopped giving a fuck by the 1980s. Some of the dirtiest locomotives to ride the rails by then.
>>1324283Desu, 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.
>>1327579The 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.
>>1327579Railfans 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.
>>1330746This. Who doesn't like the RGS? >pic related
>>1331841The 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.
>>1332109They run one regularly at the Colorado RR Museum. I got to ride it last year. Breddy gud
>>1330746Who ALCO Gang here?
>>1334686Do a separate thread on them BIGBOIS
