Remarks & Notes 
My great, great uncle Robert F. McKee, Sr., was a design engineer at Baldwin and he would give my father different Baldwin Locomotive Works builder's cards when my father would visit him in Collingswood, New Jersey. Here is a beautiful 2-8-8-2 built for the Western Pacific Railroad, number 259. It had a tractive force of 137,000 lbs., and a combined engine and tender weight in working order of 1,066,450 lbs. This Baldwin Locomotive Works builders photo specification card is from the John R. Doughty collection.
