BAP 42
Title:  BAP 42
Description:  Butte, Anaconda & Pacific Railway 42 at Rocker, Montana on October 10, 1958, Kodachrome by unknown photographer, Chuck Zeiler collection. The following is from CERA Bulletin 116, which contained reprints of various the General Electric Company publications, in this case, GE Bulletin CEA-828, published in February 1928: The Butte Anaconda & Pacific is essentially an ore-hauling road, the freight traffic from this source originating at the copper mines located near the top of Butte Hill. From the mines, the trains are lowered down the mountain a distance of 4½ miles to the Rocker yards, located a few miles west of the city of Butte. At this point new main-line trains are made up for transportation to Anaconda. The main-line division extends through a rough, mountainous country, a distance of about 20 miles, with grades as high as 0.3 per cent against the loaded trains and 1 per cent against trains of empty cars. In addition to 32 miles of electrified road, there are also numberous sidings, yards, and smelter tracks equipped with overhead trolley, which makes for a total of 123 miles on a single-track basis.

BAP 48
Title:  BAP 48
Description:  Hurry up and wait on the footboard of Butte, Anaconda & Pacific Railway 48 at Rocker, Montana on October 10, 1958, Kodachrome by unknown photographer (it looks like Dick Rumbolz handwriting on the slide mount), Chuck Zeiler collection. I don't know much about these locomotives except that they were 2400 volt, built by GE in 1914-1915, and featured pin-connected trucks. All the drawbar force was through the trucks, the body rode on top. The following is from CERA Bulletin 116, which contained reprints of various the General Electric Company publications, in this case, GE Bulletin CEA-828, published in February 1928: The locomotive equipment consists of 28 units weighing 82.25 tons each, 27 for freight and one for passenger service, and three 40-ton tractor trucks. The three tractor trucks are used with locomotives in Butte Yard, forming a 120-ton six-axle locomotive capable of handling much heavier trains, but at a slightly lower speed. The motors are GE-229-A commutating-pole type, wound for 1200 and insulated for 2400 volts. Two 1200-volt motors are permanently connected in series. The double unit, 160-ton freight locomotive is capable of giving a continuous sustained output of 2100 horsepower. The 2400 volt contactors are operated from the 600 volt control circuit and are specially constructed to separate the 2400 volts from the coils and interlocks which carry the 600 volt current. The controller provides ten steps in series and nine in series-parallel. The transition between series and series-parallel is made by a special change-over switch, which is operated electro-pneumatically. Current is collected by roller pantographs, pneumatically operated and controlled from the Engineer's compartment by an air valve. A 2400-volt insulated bus runs along the center of the cab roof. These buses are connected together by couplers between the two freight units, so that current may be obtained from either of the two collectors. For operating the control and air compressor and for lighting the locomotive and cars, 600-volt current is suppled from a 2400/600 volt dynamotor installed in each locomotive. This machine is similar to the 1200/600 dynamotor, having two distinct sets of armature coils wound on the same core and brought out to the commutator at each end. One of these windings in designed for 1800-volts and the other for 600-volts, the two commutators being connected in series across the 2400-volt circuit. The load current is taken from the 600-volt commutator.

BAP 64
Title:  BAP 64
Description:  Butte Anaconda & Pacific Railway Alco-GE 64 and 55 at Rocker, Montana on October 10, 1958, Kodachrome by unknown photographer, Chuck Zeiler collection. Information about these locomotives is a little hard to come by, but here's what I found so far, from the Electric Railway Journal May 31, 1913, verbatim including spelling:

The initial equipment consists of 17 units, 15 for freight and two for passenger service. Each unit weighs approximately 80 tons. The two units forming a freight locomotive in each case will be coupled together and operated in multiple, and combination locomotives will haul the 3400 ton train at a maximum speed of 15 m.p.h against the ruling grade and at 21 m.p.h on level tangent track. The passenger locomotives are the same design as the freight locomotives except they are geared for a maximum of 45 m.p.h. on level tangent track. A schedule of eight passenger trains per day, four each way, is maintained, the average train being composed of a locomotive and three standard passenger coaches. All locomotive equipment, as well as the substation apparatus and overhead line material, was designed and built by the General Electric Company. One of the locomotives will be exhibited at the Master Mechanics' and Master Car Builders' conventions in Atlantic City. The general design is of the articulated double-truck type, all weight being on the drivers. The cab, containing the Engineer's compartment in each end and a central compartment for the control apparatus, is carried by the two truck frames on center pins. It is of the box type, extending the entire length of the locomotive, and is provided with end and side doors. Friction draft gear mounted on the outer end frame of each truck transmits the hauling and buffing stresses directly through the truck frame, diverting these strains from the center pins and underframe. The trucks are built of heavy steel castings. The side frames are of a truss pattern with heavy top and bottom members and pedestal tie bars. They are connected by end frames and a cast-steel center transom. The entire weight is carried on semi-elliptic springs suitably equilized. On each axle is mounted a motor of the twin-geared type. The cab underframe conists of two 12 inch longitudinal steel channels on either side of the center and two six inch X six inch steel angles along the outer edge. The central channels are inclosed and form a distributing air duct for forced ventilation. Air is conducted through the center pins, which are hollow, into the truck transoms and thence to the motors. The Engineer's compartment, at either end of the cab, contains the operator's seat, controller, air-brake valves, bell and whisle ropes, ammeter, air gages, sanders, and other control appartus that should be within immediate reach of the Engineer.

Title:  NYC 318 Was Hero, She Kept Her Sisters Going
Description:  The South Shore (CSS&SB) acquired about 10 of these from the NYC. They were Alco/GE 2010 hp C+Cs built in 1930-31. About seven were painted traction orange and numbered into the 700 series. About three were kept for parts to keep the others going. This gal is certainly missing some parts!

NYC R-2 318
Title:  NYC R-2 318
Description:  New York Central Class R-2 318 at Michigan City, Indiana on February 16, 1964, photograph by Chuck Zeiler. Number 342 was built by Alco-GE in February 1931 for the NYC as number 1218 ( GE c/n 11169 - Alco c/n 68246 ), renumbered to 318 in August 1936, sold to the CSS&SB for parts in 1955. In 1955, ten R-2 Motors were sold to the Chicago South Shore and South Bend Railroad to supplement their electrified freight operations. Seven units, CSS&SB ( 701-707 ) were rebuilt to use 1500 V DC overhead lines using parts left over from the conversion of the P-Motors to 660 V DC third rail. The front ends were also modified moving the cab door from the front to a more typical side access.

CSS&SB Alco-GE 702
Title:  CSS&SB Alco-GE 702
Description:  CSS&SB Alco-GE 702 at Michigan City, Indiana on October 23, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 702 was built in 1931 by Alco-GE for the NYC as C-C class R-2 314 (c/n's Alco 68242, GE 11165) for the West Side (NYC) freight electrification. When the NYC dieselized that line, the R-2's became surplus, and the South Shore purchased 10 of the units (at a cost of $9,000.00 each), overhauled and rewired eight of them (at a cost of $88,248.00 each). They were converted from NYC's 600 volt DC to the South Shore's 1500 volt DC system and became road #'s 700-707. This unit was put into service in 1955, weighed 140 tons, and developed 3000 horsepower. The pantographs, compressors, motor blowers, and series-parallel switches were from former Cleveland Union Terminal 700 class locomotives, also built by Alco-GE for the NYC. The South Shore's 700 series locomotives were all retired in 1975.
