Baldwin Locomotive Works No. 26 rolled out of the Baldwin plant in Eddystone Pennsylvania in March 1929. Interestingly rather than selling it, the Baldwin company retained the locomotive for switching duties at their massive Eddystone Plant. After serving many years for BLW, it went through a succession of owners before arriving at Steamtown in 1990. It ran until 1999.
Yes, it has been down for 16 years. But now it's back.
On April 17th, 2016, No. 26 made her debut at a big party in her honor at Steamtown. Here you see Bruce making sure she is real pretty while waiting off stage on shop track 9 poking out the 1850's era shop.
