Waterloo Indiana Balwin DS-4-4-1000 pics and report.

Unread post by patrick »

We came into Waterloo at the end of our trip and I saw this black loc as we passed it on route 6. I asked zack to quickly turn around and without question he did. What we saw was awesome. A baldwin S12 and a HUGE grain elevator. I walked on the property and was approached by a man in a golf cart, the yard forman. he ok'ed me to take as many pics as i wanted. I want to stress, that before taking pics on private property, you need to get permission. Below are the pics I took of this cool looking unit including some cab shots.
Below is the logo and number boards of the unit.

Patrick,
Look the diff stacks NOT S12, it is Baldwin 660hp, DS-4-4-660, Baldwin 1000, DS-4-4-1000 or Baldwin VO-1000, I knew that Wabash had them.

Look 4 stacks at Wabash sites:

Just kidding. Hell of a place to store one. Hopefully it's empty.

They use two air pressure tanks, not propane.

Yes sir, it is a real authentic operating Baldwin DS-4-4-1000. Former Detroit Terminal #103 and retaining it's original number, it is at the former DeKalb Agra elevador east of town. Mackinac Mac and I caught it there in the winter of 2002 on our return from Indianapolis. I believe the elevador was owned by Andersons at that time.
