It would be awesome if you could showcase the final font here on the forum when completed. I've been looking quite some time for some high-resolution photos of original Baldwin lettering to eventually draw some HD samples for myself. Someday I intend to build a 1:20.3 locomotive of Class 57 of BC&F No. 1. Based on the 1 known photo of it, it appears to have the Baldwin lettering but without the serifs. (See: [ngdiscussion.net]) the ampersand is extremely similar and from my close inspection, it most likely had the red shadow stroke. Whether I'm correct or not is up for debate but it would be neat if there were any other Locomotives anywhere that had simular lettering to BC&F 1.
