Swimming With Some ‘Sharks’

That was great news that the owner of Baldwin’s last two sharks says he will have them donated to a museum at his death. Here are a couple of shark photos.

In the top image it is late 1968 in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, where five ex-New York Central sharks plus several Baldwin switchers can be seen in the Monongahela engine facility.

The two units on the left, Nos. 1216 and 1205, are the survivors now being stored in Michigan.

In the bottom photograph it is June 13, 1977, and Delaware & Hudson Nos. 1205 and 1216 (the two survivors) are rounding a curve in Whitehall, New York.
