INCO Steam Locomotives

The Canadian Copper Co. 1, Baldwin Locomotive Works #23801 4/1904 INCO

Baldwin Locomotive Works provided the five new steam locomotives. These were powerful 80 ton 0-6-0's with 39,000 lbs. of tractive effort, much bigger than typical switch engines used in Canada. (CPR's 0-6-0's of the time had only 27,000 t.e.)

The massive size of the Baldwin switch engines is evident in this photograph. INCO
