Folks this is my first post. Several years ago one of the publications, (I think either Live Steam or Locomotive and Railway Preservation) advertised for sale a set of three ring binders that had the mechanical drawings and specifications for Baldwin built steam locomotives. Does anyone out there know if these are still available, and if so who is selling them? I am involved with the restoration of a 45 ton Baldwin that was built for the Polson Lumber Co. as their #45. We are in need of a drawing for the tender as we would like to build one to the origional specs.
