Dose anyone know were i could get or find Baldwin blue prints of steam locos?That depends on what locomotive you want drawings for. Some are obtainable, some are not. Some exist, but most drawings are gone, even though there is a lot of volume of Baldwin drawings in the various collections over half of it is long gone. The major exception are the drawing sets that were kept by the railroads that bought the locomotive. The Baldwin steam loco customers had the option of having a set of drawings to every part delivered with their new steam locomotives, but many customers did not opt for this option, as it did cost extra. Luckily some RR's did buy the extra set and that is a lot of what is left for us today, as they were kept then donated back to libraries and museums in later years.

Hi Craig,Which specific drawings do you need? We have original linens which we can have made into blue prints. Hope this is of help.
