    Could anyone tell the make and model of this engine? It worked the area I lived in when I was in grade school. Mainly the Co-op and Scott Paper mill in my city, Oconto Falls, WI, and industries over in Oconto, WI. It was all a plain dirty black with no lettering or safety strips.
    Also is it available from anyone. DC or DCC. Around here it was just switching with no turn arounds.

    Looks to be a Baldwin VO-1000. Atlas made them in N-Scale. Not sure of manufacturers for other scales..

    It may be a model of a Baldwin VO-1000. Your model has four stacks which i see in many 1:1 photos I found. But this is the only photo I found with a curved fairing from the cab to the battery box.

    Actually, that's the late Baldwin VO. The early version has the oval grille. After the styling change came a new designation--Baldwin DS 4-4-1000. That might help you find the version you want.

    Or not. Baldwin liked styling changes, and later DS 4-4-1000s had a flat grille. Atheran made that version in HO--or, rather, made the S-12, with a single, fat turbocharger stack, which is easy to convert to a late DS 4-4-1000. That styling could have the four small stacks (early DS 4-4-1000) or the fat turbocharger stack (either late DS 4-4-1000 or S-12).

    Confused yet? Modeling Baldwin diesels is fun!

    Atlas makes a version in N scale. I have the DCC model. I'm not worried about rivet-counting, so I don't know how perfectly accurate it is, but it runs very nicely.

    I believe that's the model pictured in post #3, isn't it?

    Right you are. Mine is a later release, in B&O livery.

    If N scale, it is a VO-1000. Nothing else has been made in plastic, which I can remember. Although years ago there might have been something in brass.

    Stewart Hobbies (or is it Bowser now?) offered them in HO scale.
