Baldwin Diesel Engines
Magazine Advertisements


In 1931 Baldwin purchased I. P. Morris & De La Vergne, Inc. and moved its assets to Eddystone [1]. The 1943 and 1944 ads below list the "Baldwin De La Vergne Sales Corp." as part of the Baldwin Group. During the mid and late 1950's all diesel production was moved to the Hamilton plant in Ohio, but due to rising costs this plant was totally closed in 1960/61 and all products moved back to Eddystone[2]. It is interesting to note that the Hamilton engine, used in Lima-Hamilton Locomotives was continued after the BLH merger and until the Hamilton plant closure, but never produced at (transferred to) Eddystone.
