O Scale Hall of Fame Chicago – 2015
A consummate O Scaler, working with O Scalers and organizations to promote our hobby. His primary contribution has been his business, Baldwin Forge and Machine, which primarily deals in converting 3 rail locomotives to 2 rail. He has completed ~ 1,000 conversions. He has run clinics, and created a tutorial, sharing his knowledge of the process, so others can do the work themselves. Joe has been a consultant to Sunset Models and a primary force in organizing and running the 2009 Baltimore O Scale National.
