- #51 Baldwin DS-4-4-6(660 HP). Builder's number 73042, built in November, 1946.
Only DS-4-4-6 built for and sold to Canada for Crows Nest Pass Coal, Coal Creek, BC, running on the Morrissey, Fernie & Michel Rwy as #1. Sold to Delta Alaska
Terminal Rwy, running as their #1, then sold to the princpals of the Seattle & North Coast.
As far as is known, it was never used on the SNCT. Was painted as "North Coast Lines" #51
for another operation. As NCL #51, it had a Northern Pacific style "monad", which legal action
forced them to remove (all lettering and monad were in white). Subsequently repainted in Seattle
& North Coast colors, but no lettering was added to the hood. It displayed SNCT 51 in yellow on the
cab sides. Was stored in Tacoma, Washington, possibly at the Continental Grain site where it may have
seen some use. It was sold and moved to the Chelatchie Prairie RR, where it arrived in SNCT paint in
November 1982. At some time, the DS had been "hot rodded" (the four original exhaust stacks being
replaced with six straight stacks. It was used by the Chelatchie Prairie for approximately two years,
apparently in exchange for storage of the locomotive. While on the CP, it remained in SNCT paint. It
was eventually sold to the Napa Valley Wine Train as their #51. Photos of #51
