!!You must have at least Bin Patch v1.7.1022 installed in your MSTS root folder to use this model or you will get engine file errors!!

A Baldwin-Westinghouse Class D type, the #1613 was built in 1916, builders number 43044 and was scrapped 3-55 by Lippsett Steel in Los Angeles. Total Weight, 127,750 lbs. Traction motors, 4 Westinghouse 308.D-3-225 horsepower, totaling 900hp. Controls, Type HL-Duplex, 600/1200 Volt, Westinghouse 14-EL air brake, K-14 engineer's control valve. Two D-4-K air compressors. Maximum Tractive Effort, 30,000 lb. with traction motor blowers going. Trucks, Baldwin Rigid-Bolster 6.5' wheelbase and 5-1/2"x10" journals. Original wheels were 38-1/2" diameter spoked steel-tired, but during World-War 2, were changed over to solid steel 36-1/2" wheels.

Model built in TSMv1.1© by Abacus®, using plans of a basic "Off -the-Shelf" Baldwin Steeplecab furnished by Chuck Zeiler. Many railroad-specific parts had to be made by eye-ball "guess-timations". I think we have come up with a very plausible virtual model of the originals. Many parts were made using photos from the Pacific Electric "Baldwin patterned" (assembled by PE Torrence Shops) #1624, from Rod Fishburn, furnished by Paul DeVerter. The cabview is made from the 1624's cab.

(2008) Model rebuilt using TSMPro by Abacus ®. Much new information has come into my possesion since the original model was made in 2005, so some details has been improved, corrected, or added. Also, new animations have been added for the trolley pole, cab doors and windows. See "ANIMATIONS_readme.txt" for instructions for using these.

The 5-key "Passenger View" cam has been commented out due to constant cycling of the new animated doors and trolley pole within this view.

This model is "Bin-Capable", meaning it is able to reverse ends by keying 1 twice. To reverse the single trolley pole, key Ctrl+NumPad8. Lighting and cab is adjusted automatically.

Credits:

As mentioned, Paul DeVerter for supplying Rod Fishburn's photos of PE 1624 at Orange Empire Rail Museum for many details.
Chuck Zeiler, for the many Baldwin's photos and the plans and his help with all the editing of the engine files, sounds, lighting and help with the Cabview, not to mention his patience. Wayne Campbell for his spark codes and wheel textures.

Thanks, all.
