Baldwin Westinghouse
Barsteel Frame Styles

The most popular, durable & practical design by Baldwin-Westinghouse was the barsteel frame. Companies requested this design for the ease of maintenace to gain access to the brake mechanism assemblies which required daily adjustments.

​Pictured to the left are the final assembly bays in the factory.
The hard rock mines ordered these units to be built as small as 4-tons.

The locomotive to the left was built for Magma Copper Co. with an 18 inch track gauge.

This locomotive is currently on display in Superior, AZ  CN#64624
Year Built: 6 / 1942
Pittsburgh Coal Company 
purchased many units with a cable gathering reel at the one end.  The main purpose for these locomotives was to pick up all the loaded coal mine cars at the working faces.

The next step would be to deliver the mine cars to the main haulage line underground where typically a high tonnage locomotive would pick them up for the long distance runs.
Anaconda Copper Company ordered a variety of locomotives for their unique haulage needs.
The above unit is equipped with a third rail pick up instead of overhead wire.
