Manufacturing engines and rolling stock for the railroads was and is a huge undertaking. Usually just a few specialty companies dominate the field. In the heyday of steam in the first half of the 20th century, these companies included Baldwin Locomotive Works and the American Locomotive Company. This and related pages will show scenes of operations in some of these plants.
