"Die Locomotive", a paper about the status of loco
The pdf files in the folder Allemand-German are from the german "Die Locomotive", a paper about the status of locomotive building at the time of publication. This first issue is the one for the year 1911. Other will follow, time permitting. A great thanks to Eric who found that gold mine. Cheers, Claude
A Guide to Collection of Baldwin Locomotive Works
The bulk of this collection is made up of engineering drawings of locomotives and their parts. These drawings are loose and available for reproduction. The rest of the collection consists of bound volumes of standards developed by Baldwin when building locomotives or parts. Some of these have been microfilmed. 2) Send an email to DeGolyer asking for a quotation. Make sure to state in the email "the drawings are for personal use". Address the email to Cynthia Franco. cafranco@mail.smu.edu The cost of each drawing is $30. (For a few locos it quickly adds up.) If you don't mind that the drawings are folded then maybe tell them that and pay a little less for postage. (3) They are fast with their quote. Mail them a money order in U.S. dollars. (4) Wait six to eight weeks.

Jackson & Sharp Company, Car and Ship Builders, 18
JACKSON AND SHARP COLLECTION The Jackson and Sharp Company was founded in 1863 by Job H. Jackson and Jacob F. Sharp to build railroad cars. Its first products were peach and fruit cars that were useful to haul Delaware produce to markets. The company soon became one of the leading employers in Wilmington and one of the leading railroad car manufacturers in the world. It built the first American narrow-gauge car in 1871, received the Centennial Exposition medal for a car exhibited there in 1876, and built many private cars for wealthy Americans and foreign nobility such as Dom Pedro, Emperor of Brazil, and King Oscar II of Sweden. They were especially known for their ornate private cars whose interiors featured cherry, black walnut, and mahogany ornamental work. During the 1880s Jackson and Sharp employed over a thousand men and produced 400 cars a year.
