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 #1601 was built in 1912 and was scrapped 1/56 by National Metals in Los Angeles. Total Weight, 124,200 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.

1601 is one of fifteen Class-D locomotives ordered from Baldwin Locomotive Works by the Southern Pacific RR in 1912. Of these, ten were delivered to the PE, three went to the Portland Eugene & Eastern ( The "Red Electric" in the Willamette Valley, in Oregon), one to the Peninsular Railway at San Jose, and the last for SP's Oakland, California electric suburban lines. SP and PE&E units carried pantographs, while the PE's used trolley poles. The PE&E units were 750/1500 Volts, the remaining twelve were 600/1200 Volts.PE eventually owned the SP Oakland loco #200, re-numbered as #1611; the Peninsular Railway loco #4 as number 1618. Loco's #1616 and #1617 were the last of the Baldwin-built steeplecabs, purchased new in 1922. They were so expensive, that PE decided that all the next locomotives would be built elsewhere. The lowest bid came from PE's own Torrance Shops. The actual construction of the carbodies of the 1619-1631 class were by Llewellyn Iron Works in Los Angeles, the assembly of the locomotives was done by the Torrance Shop crews. As a departure from the Baldwin locomotives, the 1619-class used General Electric controls and equipment.These last new electric locomotives for PE were more powerful than their predecessor 1601-class, and were used almost entirely on the Northern District lines, until the last days of electric traction, when they were spread all over the system. December 1, 1956 was the last day of operation for electric locomotives on the Pacific Electric.
(Historical Data by Ira Swett's "Interurbans" special #37, "Cars of the Pacific Electric, Vol.III, 1965).

(2005) Model built in TSM v1.1© 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 default HHP and KIHA31 are required to be installed in the default locations for all the sounds to work correctly.

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.

Hey,

Does this and the other motors work in Open Rails? The doors won't close when I try to press the keybind for them. Seems a bit weird.
Or do the key inputs not register in OR and are replaced by something else?

Thanks,
Stephen.

These old motors do work in OR and the usual key strokes, Q for Left side and Shift+Q for the right side, work to close/open the doors and windows. Shift V rotates the trolley pole. The animations are s-l-o-w, though, so be patient ;).

I see the Pastimes Billiards franchise is still good with the Hotel Del Rio chain. Hope they got the table more level than that one in Dolores. "It was the table!" That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :rotfl: :bigboss:
