The Philadelphia Pennsylvania firm, the Baldwin Locomotive Works, built it's last locomotive by 1956. While we will never be able to stand in BLW's erecting halls, we can gaze upon this scene of one of it's locomotives coming together after a frame up restoration. It's just like what you would do with a vintage Chevy or a Mustang; just the parts are a bit heavier! (Note the locomotive's slope back tender in the background.)
I do not think I exaggerate saying Steamtown has one of the finest shops in the world to repair steam locomotives. Approximately two dozen enormous machine tools are available to work on any conceivable part for our favorite mechanical beasts. There is a drop pit, a welding room, paint shop, locker room, lunch room, storehouse, all with solid floors and heat. Recently deceased Steamtown Superintendent Harold "Kip" Hagen was most proud of the refurbished 30 ton cranes and brand new roof.
