The #(21)812 black and orange Baldwin switcher was produced in 1959 and 1960, in three variations. All three variations have a reversing unit and an operating headlight. The first two variations have a black plastic body. The first has a footplate extending from the steps that is thought to be an early 1959 model. The second variation, shown in the photo, was produced in both years and is like the first except it does not have the footplate extending from the step (see Photo #2). The third variation, and rarest of all of the Baldwin switchers, is painted black over a green plastic body and carries a "NRS" value rating by Greenberg.
