Centipedes of the Nacionales de Mexico (Mexican National Railways) including #6404 being serviced at the San Luis Potosí diesel shops in December 1959.
The Baldwin type designation was DR-12-8-1500/2 meaning a diesel road locomotive, with 12 axles, 8 of which were driven, and two engines of 1,500 hp (1.1 MW) each.
Reliability was an ongoing problem, and the PRR units were eventually derated (stripped of their turbochargers) and relegated to helper service.

 Baldwin   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
In 1943, the Baldwin Locomotive Works introduced a truly unique line of cab unit diesels with the unveiling of a monster locomotive that quickly earned the nickname "Centipede".
But it was not to be, the 24 wheels of the Centipede, and the engines and pipe work, resulted in high maintenance costs that quickly stalled sales.
Contrary to many reports, Baldwin diesels could be run in MU operation with diesels built by other makers if the units were ordered with the proper MU equipment from the Baldwin catalog.

 Baldwin DR-6 at AllExperts
Baldwin Locomotive Works produced several different Baldwin DR-6 models of 6-axle passenger train-hauling diesel locomotives between 1945 and 1948.
Many shared the same Baldwin model number, DR-6-4-20, even though they were rather different; this was because the Baldwin model only encoded the total axles (6), the driven axles (4) and the power output (2,000 hp).
These locomotives had a unique cab that featured the same upright, aggressive prow as the Baldwin "Centipede" demonstrator but with a shorter nose.

 Union Pacific AFE Notes
Baldwin would not sell it to UP right away due to commitments already made to test the unit on other roads.
Two Baldwin 1,600 horsepower heavy duty diesel road switching locomotives were to be assigned to North Platte, Neb., two were to be assigned to Pocatello, Idaho, and two to St. Joseph, Mo., to Marysville, Kan., service.
The new Baldwin units would have 97,500 pounds starting tractive effort and should be ideal for hump service, and would release four 1,000 horsepower switchers for assignment to other important terminals, which in turn will release eight steam locomotives.

 Proposed AT & SF Turbine? - Trains.com Forums   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
GE was building Turbines for the UP during this time, but Baldwin Locomotive Works was on the ropes struggling to survive with the demise of steam locomotive orders and the pending Lima-Hamilton merger.
Details on the unit are skimpy, but it appeared that a Baldwin 'Centipede' 4-8-8-4 frame and cab were to be used to house the turbine-generator equipment, with a trailing tender to supply fuel, water, and space for auxilliary gear.
Baldwin built relatively few diesels for the Santa Fe, but it had been the road's favorite steam builder since the early 1900s, constructing just about every locomotive you'd think of when you think of Santa Fe steam.

Like Alco, Baldwin was a steam builder early on, but made their move into the diesel market with a line of switchers before moving to road units after World War 2.
Baldwin was located at Eddystone, PA, outside of Philadelphia, and along a Pennsy line, hence the railroad's early preferences for units from this builder.
While Baldwin switchers were well-known for their lugging ability, the company failed to make the jump to building reliable road units, and even after their takeover of Lima-Hamilton failed to gather enough market share to make a go of things.

The Baldwin Locomotive Works, a leader in the production of steam locomotives, entered the diesel market too late to survive long in an industry dominated by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division and, to a lesser extent, the American Locomotive Company, and their Canadian affiliates.
Baldwin, however, carried the "tailor made" philosophy into its earlier diesel production, a strategic error which resulted in the creation of some distinctive designs that were sold only to a handful of railroads.

 Turfgrass Industry Seeing Green in Alabama
It claimed 38 percent of the state’s 22,844 turfgrass acres in 2001, followed by centipede, which carpeted 34 percent of the sod acreage, and zoysia at 14 percent.
For centipede, on the other hand, the $1.41-per-square-yard market price comes up 21 cents below per-unit cost of production for large operations and a whopping 66 cents below the breakeven point for 100-acre farms.
Among Alabama’s 53 turfgrass-producing counties, Baldwin was tops in 2001, with 9,033 acres, followed by Lowndes with 1,342 acres; Chambers, with 1,232 acres; and Russell and St. Clair, with 980 and 896 acres, respectively.

 Union Pacific Fairbanks-Morse Erie Builts
At the time UP began its search, in early 1945, only Baldwin had a existing design that met UP's specifications, in the form of a demonstrator six-axle, 2,000 horsepower passenger unit in two units completed in January and March 1945.
In addition to the Baldwin design, UP also found what it was looking for in the opposed piston diesel engine that Fairbanks-Morse had so successfully furnished to the U. Navy during the war.
With this latest delay, and after a visit to the Baldwin plant showed that the builder had yet to begin buying parts to get the units into production, UP lost patience and canceled the Baldwin order in April 1947.

The eight Class A-4s (road numbers 2670 through 2677) were delivered by Baldwin in 1941, and had the same basic specifications as the A-3s, but were different in appearance, with 14 wheel centipede tenders and vestibule cabs, and they were 1000 pounds heavier.
The last of the 4-8-4s purchased by the NP were the Class A-5s, which were built by Baldwin in 1943.
This group of 10 (road numbers 2680 through 2689) were built to the same specifications as the Class A-4s, but turned out to be 16,200 lbs heavier.

 Pennsylvania Railroad Diesel Classes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
This system used the manufacturer, the intended purpose of the engine, and its horsepower as a generic class, adding a suffix when necessary to designate modifications to an engine or a group of engines at manufacture or when modified later while in service.
A locomotive designated class BP20 would be a Baldwin passenger locomotive with 2000 horsepower.
The Centipedes, by the way, fit as delivered into class BP60, but after they were run through Altoona and modified for helper service, they finished out their years as class BH50, meaning the units had been derated to 5000 horsepower.
