Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Baldwin RS-12 railroad locomotive was a 1,200 hp diesel-electric road-switcher configured with an AAR type B-B wheel arrangement. It was the follow-on model to the 1,000 hp DRS-4-4-1000, first introduced in 1948. It was more successful than its predecessor selling 50 units to eight railroads, versus 22 units to three railroads. Only one railroad, The Pennsylvania Railroad bought both models. When Baldwin Locomotive Works merged with Lima-Hamilton the combination Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton decided to concentrate locomotive production at Baldwin's Eddystone, Pennsylvania plant. There was still one outstanding order for Lima LRS-1200s, but the customer, New York Central Railroad agreed to receive RS-12s instead.show more
