    Hi Robin, I have a FULL CD from Daves Railpixs, It came off that.
    From the Penssy days.
    Some one should know the location, shot taken in 1932.

    The photo at the top is of a PRR class P5A 2-C-2 loco built in the early 30s by both Baldwin and the PRR's Altoona shops. The photo could have been taken in either of the two locations, but my guess would be at the Altoona shops of the PRR because of the stage of completion. Although I'm not sure of how much work Baldwin did on this loco, the Altoona shops could build anything...and they just about did. I would suspect that Baldwin did the castings of the foundation and supplied the trucks, Westinghouse or GE supplied the controls and motors, and Altoona put it all together. The other B&W photo is of a PRR class FF2 1-C+C-1 built about the same time and through Baldwin and Altoona. These were freight haulers, but did some passenger service. The possibility of having the crew killed in a grade crossing accident while in passenger service led to the eventual design of the famous GG1. Here's a postcard view of the Westinghouse Machine Co. in East Pittsburg...it'll give you a good idea of what a large erecting shop floor looked like and the size of some of those beeeeeg boxcabs. Right, Chris? :wave:

    I posted it because I know that you just HATE boxcabs, right? :D :p Personally, I'm a steeple cab kind of guy. I can't wait for Model Railroad Warehouse to get those Baldwin Class D steeplecab kits in production. But first, I have to get my 40T steeple cabs finished! :eek: :rolleyes: Keep up the good stuff, Chris, you're heading up this xtra!
