I was just doing a little research on Baldwin diesels as I am a big Fan of their cab units, and wanted to show a few of the more interesting bits of info on them.

The Baldwin air controls was where the term "lash up" came into being from what I have read. They would not play with EMD or ALCo so in order to consist them the controls had to be lashed up. It wasn't easily done.
