I have a builders plate from the Baldwin locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pa It has the number 346 in the center. The piece is approximately 8 and 1/2 inches in diameter. I believe it is made of brass. How do I find out what Loco this actually came off of? I am going to sell it (probably on ebay) and would like to have as much info as possible on the plate. Thank you.

possibly the only locomotive to earn the title of "cat tree" as it was a favorite sunning location for bob richardsons cats when on display at south alomosa

#346 returned to Golden from PA in late 2004. The CRRM folks expect it to be ready to operate sometime in 2005.

This locomotive is at the Strasburg Railroad shops for a complete restoration it arrived there on Augest 7th 2003 and the completion of the restoration should take about 7-9 months depending on other projects in the shops as well.
