Between 1909 and 1937, Baldwin Locomotive Works produced 44 specialized locomotives intended for the rigorous duty of hauling logs along steep and curvy railroads. Learn about the great variations in the design and appearance of these timber titans, including different water carrying methods, departures from as-built configurations, and more. While each locomotive bragged its own unique qualities, some were lauded more than others for their endurance over extensive travels. Remarkably, 10 of these locomotives have persisted to present day, with a handful even being active today. 

The 30 years it took to compile this book included intense research and meticulous restoration of over 450 original photographs, all of which have come together for an extremely thorough examination of each of these 44 hardcore locomotives. Presented in construction number order, you’ll get an inside look at the full history of them all from start to finish.
