It's not a real Baldwin plate. It's based on the one on the Fred Gurley at Disneyland.

Note that the serial number is 14358, but the year is 1853. Baldwin only had built a few hundred engines by that year--maybe not even a thousand at that point.

The plate is purely fictional but does look good! Maybe one day Eddie Sotto will come by here and tell us about the plate!


Not only that, but the engine does not look like an 1853 design, definitely a post-1856 design.
