Steam Locomotive Builders
The art of steam locomotive design and manufacturing in North America was concentrated in three very successful companies; the American Locomotive Company, the Baldwin Locomotive Works and the Lima Locomotive Works.

These companies had roots back to the earliest days of the steam era and were dominant right up to the demise of the market in the late 1940"s. Ironically, not one of these superb steam locomotive builders was able to make a commercial success in the diesel dominated railroad market, and each has ceased manufacturing locomotives.

All three of these locomotive builders acquired unique characteristics such as the shape of their builders plates. They also became known for their unique accomplishments: ALCO, for developing 3-cylinder steam locomotives; Lima, for developing 2-8-4 "Super-Power" locomotives; and Baldwin for designing duplex drive locomotives and for being the largest, longest-lived, and most successful of the steam locomotive builders.

Steam Locomotive Information
The database which lies behind this site derives from a number of sources. It began from a locomotive list maintained by a man named Tim Bosshardt in the late 1980's and early 1990's and was added to based upon a list published by the Tourist Railroad Assocation. Additional input came from thousands of miles of travel by Dale Brown and Doug Bailey, and from other sources too numerous to record or remember. Ownership histories, where we have them at all, came mostly from a text file "ownership guide" submitted by Mark Halford.

Surviving Steam Photo Archive
The purpose of this site is to show current photographs of surviving steam locomotives around the country. While any steam locomotive can be included here, as the URL suggests the emphasis is on "park engines", those engines displayed outdoors in city parks, in widely varying states of repair. I'd also like to focus on engines that exist outside of preservation, in storage or in some cases even in scrapyards!

Three Cylinder Steam Locomotives
Three Cylinder Steam Locomotives by Wes Barris.

As far as I know, there are only five surviving 3-cylinder rod steam locomotives in the United States (this, of course, does not include all of the 3-cylinder Shay type locomotives).

Yellowstones
Only 72 Yellowstones were built (in five different classes). Each class of Yellowstone was a different design (except for the two classes owned by the DM&IR). The design was usually dictated by the specific needs of the railroad that received them. The first to have a Yellowstone built was the Northern Pacific who named the wheel arrangment after Yellowstone Park (a region serviced by the Northern Pacific).
