and drawings for construction and decoration of locomotives, as well as publications of the company. One book deals with the
railroads of South America. The collection also includes 436 copy slides (done in 1985) of paint books numbers 1 and 2.
Baldwin Locomotive Works, a Philadelphia steam locomotive production firm founded in 1831, eventually merged with the Lima-Hamilton
Corporation and became the Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton Corporation.
