I knew my Baldwin sense was tingling.  Back when I was in high school, I drew up 3d models of these in Solidworks.  I'll see if I can dig out the files (assuming I still have them).  With some tweaking, they can be used for Shapeways 3d printing.  Assuming I do find the files and the models meet my standards, I'll post them somewhere online.

Dang it, you've got me wanting to do an ABA set again ...

Iain,
I know what you mean. I did a series of virtual 3D models for Microsoft Train Simulator and have always wanted some way to turn them into "real" models. Among them was a set of Baldwin "Babyface" deisels...

Except for the freight Sharks and the Atlas switchers there is a definate lack of Baldwin in N.

I think it is actually humorous that you can get several models of UP turbines and articulateds but only two Baldwin's, just as you say. But what do I know. I'm sure everyone needs a veranda style gas turbine, especially all the guys with layouts built on hollow care doors. Yes sir, nothing says shortline like an Erie Triplex!

Note to Horizon Hobby...
If you're going to produce odd ball locomotives, why not manufacture models people can actually use. There were 55 gas turbines, all owned by Union Pacific and unusable anywhere else. There were 105 Baldwin DR-4-4-15 cab units built, 33 of them "babyface". They were used by a half dozen different railroads in all parts of the US of A.

Found the Rail Model Craftsman version of the BF16 in the July 1959 issue. May be a bit more accurate than the Cyclopedia version...
There was an earlier RMC drawing from April 1953, but I don't have that issue.

RMC shows the fuel filler in the correct location. I think they also locate the cab further forward than the Cyclopedia does.
Pink lines are Kalmbach version.

Hi Frank,

Even that drawing has mistakes.For instance the nose door on the BF16 is a full door not a half door as it is on the BP20 and the BF15.

Seeing all those Train Sim models made me jizz my pants.

My model I did in high school is not wanting to open, so I'm going to have to figure out something.

Who cares, he's an adult. This is a place, generally, for grownups, I think grownups can handle a little adult language.

I don't care what he says. Nothing wrong with "adult" language, if its adult language. But I remember talking like that in high school. So I opined.

Jizzing over computer images of trains....? Really? And that's Adult? LOL

We are not in the Atlas Forum anymore Toto, we need to act like adults here!  That sometimes means hearing an opinion that is not our own!!!   :D :D :ashat:

It is so nice that we don't take ourselves too seriousely here!
