The Baldwin steamer had a 2-cylinder double-acting vertical engine, with condenser mounted in front on the dash. The body seated two passengers, and final drive was by single chain.[1]

The Baldwin steam car was on the market as early as July 1900. Advertisements in 1904 note that it was in receivership. The factory survived as late as 1908 whan an effort to make gasoline cars failed. It is unclear if the Locomotor Steam Carriage was made by the Baldwin firm or if it is a successor firm that acquired the Baldwin assets. Much research remains to be done.
