Baldwin Locomotive Works Steam Builders Plate, Milwaukee Road 2-8-2, Brass, Rare For Sale
Another plate from my collection that needs a new home. sale is for a brass Baldwin Locomotive Works builders plate. Plate is 9 1/4 inch in diameter and is construction #57181, October 1923. This plate is from Milwaukee Road steam locomotive #8392 later renumbered #492 in 1938. Locomotive class is L-2b which was a 2-8-2 or Mikado type locomotive. Baldwin delivered 100 locomotives in this class (8300-8399) and my notes show that none survived. Plate is in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks. Has been repainted at some point. Lettering is sharp. 1 tiny edge ding at 6 o'clock There is some distortion around the upper bolt hole--the hole is slightly elongated but doesn't detract. Overall, a really nice looking plate and fairly hard to find. Buyer to pay listed shipping.
