The Locomotives that Baldwin built by Fred Westing Contains a complete facsimile of the original Baldwin Locomotive Works 1831-1923.  Dust jacket 1966   192 pages
History being forged is what author %Vesting brings you in every phase of Baldwin progress.
Here are more than 300 photographs, many never before printed, linked with the long out of print "History of the Baldwin Locomotive Works-1831 to 1923," to which Westing gives colorful meaning as he brings the story up through the last days of steam to the Engine 76150 the final and highest serial number.
The name Baldwin and Locomotive are almost synonymous and this is the story of that great institution during the glory days when the railroads packed the freight, the mail, the power and moved the country forward.
"Would it be stretching credulity too far to suggest that there must have been something prophetic in the fact that the first permanent railroad in America was built almost within a stone's throw of the present locomotive works at Eddystone which bears the name of Baldwin?"
This is the Baldwin Locomotive book . . . as big as life in the age of moguls. Hear their drivers pounding? Or is it just the heart of the man who loved those days of steam!
