Thanks so much to the great TimM for these great records as he said “Most of those records came from the US Army Center of Military History and all I did was copy them during lunch breaks when I worked nearby in downtown DC in 1993-1994.…. Heck, I was a peacetime GI railroader, no big deal. I was lucky no one was shooting at me and the trains and track were in good condition”

USA Locomotive #612 Baldwin

Built in 1943 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works for the United States Government as a USRA designed locomotive #2630 with a 2-8-0 wheel arrangement, it was later re-numbered to #612. The locomotive served most of it's life at the U.S. Army's railroad training facility in Ft. Eustis, VA. In 1971 the locomotive was donated to the State of West Virginia for use at Cass Scenic Railroad, but never operated there.
Although the photos do not present this locomotive as a gem, it really is in pretty decent condition and is 95% complete. Much of the equipment has been removed from the locomotive to reduce it's weight for shipment. The owner is available to arrange shipment of the locomotive and also has the capabilities to restore it to operating condition for a Buyer. Some of the locomotives mechanical details include: The flues and many of the appliances have been removed from the locomotive to reduce it's shipping weight, 19" x 26" cylinders, working pressure 225 lbs, coal fired, 41 sq ft grate area, power reverse, 8x11 friction bearing journals (on locomotive), 31,500lb tractive effort, c/n 69858 Updated info 10/24/14 Locomotive has been disassembled so that it can be easily trucked to new location
