Whitcomb History by John Stewart

Whitcomb"The Whitcomb Locomotive Works were located at Rochelle, IL. Originaly known as the George D. Whitcomb Co. which produced mining equipment including gas and electric locomotives after the turn of the century.In 1931 the company became bankrupt and was purchased by the Baldwin Locomotive Works from 1931which operated the company as the Whitcomb Locomotive Works until 1940. Baldwin completly took over the company in 1940 and was operated as a division of Baldwin. In Febuary of 1952 locomotive production was shifted from Rochelle to the Eddystone Works."

"Note about model numbers. The first two numbers is the weight, the next two letters stand for engine/drive combination (DM = Diesel Mechanical, DE = Diesel Electric)" - per Donald R. Hensley, Jr.
