Need help in identifying
Author: TonyJ

While scanning more of the late Lee Carlson's large format color slides, I found several unidentified steam locomotive shots. Can anyone identify this locomotive and location so I can correctly tag the collection for our NRHS chapter?

This locomotive appears to be a 2-8-0 with the number "1" on the smokebox front. Looking at it closely I can see it is a Baldwin product. - Tony J.

Wouldn't that be the former DB&W, C&S, RGS 74 at Boulder?

What a great little loco...

This is the Death Valley #1, a 3' gauge 2-8-0 in Carlsbad, NM. Photo by Dale Brown, borrowed from http://www.steamlocomotive.info/vlocomotive.cfm?Display=859

Thank You. I found a couple more of the same engine, but no lettering to help. Now I wonder why a Death Valley RR locomotive is on display at Carlsbad. - Tony J.

Tony, I wonder how many "One Spots" Baldwin built? When I first saw the fencing I thought of the 2-8-2 in Toledo, OR, a lumber co. engine, which was fenced in like that until 2000, when the Yaquina Pacific chapter NRHS moved her and now has a shelter built over her. Not the right engine, looking at photos.

It would be interesting to know how many "One Spots" Baldwin did build. - Tony J.

The locomotive was sold in the early thirties to United States Potash out of Loving, NM.

Check out another United States Potash locomotive, this one now displayed in Pomona, CA (Los Angeles): http://www.steamlocomotive.info/vlocomotive.cfm?Display=176
