1943 Cotton Belt Baldwin Builders Plate VO-1000 VGC
For your consideration here is a nice Baldwin Locomotive Works builders plate. This particular engine (originally St. Louis Southwestern, "Cotton Belt") was a Philadelphia product, bearing serial number 64750, showing a builders date of 1943. (Records indicate it was April, 1943) The plate measures 9 1/4" in diameter and weighs in at 5 lbs
This engine began its service career as Cotton Belt #1003. It was one of two VO1000 diesels delivered in 1943 and one of 23 delivered to the Cotton Belt in all. The plates is in very good condition, with no cracks or breaks. Please note the gouge in the numeral "5". We believe that this does not detract from the value of the plate. The rear of the plate bears the serial number 271360 and has been untouched since removal from the engine. This is NOT a repro plate. This link shown below will take you to a page with a picture of sister Cotton Belt unit #1005.
