About This Item

1937. J.P. (John Peter) Laux became a Master Mechanic in 1915 for the Lehigh Railway and rose to Superintendent of Motive Power when Lehigh RR was its highest. He produced this manuscript of which there are no known original copies there are 57 hand mounted photographs in the basic engines and concludes with the Locomotive Ownership by year, 1856-1936. The Average Tractive Force in 1921 was 37,621 lbs but by 1936 it had increased to 51, 293 lbs. The No. 5100 was delivered in 1931 as a class T-1 (two were delivered, Richard Duley notes Baldwin also delivered later at Class T-1a). This original work complements minor details in Duley's significant contribution. There are no copies on OCLC. Since the age of steam ended, these magnificent workhorses were often scrapped. Very few of the locomotives have survived but here are nice black-and-white photographs from Superintendent J.P. Laux that show the Lehigh Valley Railroad's history in the period just before it was supplanted by diesel and the emergence of the Interstate system.
