It is late 1968 in Conway Yard neard Pittsburgh. It’s appropriate that this Baldwin DS44-660 switcher still has Pennsylvania Railroad markings because Conway way, after all, built by the Pennsy.

Baldwin Locomotive Works built S12 No. 27 new for the Akron & Barberton Belt in May 1951. The switcher would toil for the belt line railroad for two decades before being scraped in March 1972. It is shown working in Barberton in late 1967 or January 1968.

NYC Heritage is Showing Through

July 10, 2020

Penn Central 8075 is a Baldwin road switcher that is shown sitting in Sharonville, Ohio, near Cincinnati, in the late 1960s or early 1970s. Notice how the New York Central herald below the cab side window has been painted out. Either they did a poor job of it or some of that paint is peeling. Whatever the case, there isĀ  just enough of the herald showing through to identify the origin of this locomotive.
