Trains and war

The number on the locomotive in the head-on photograph is 884, and it can be seen that it was made by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia. Another photograph, the one with the sideways view and the person, shows a locomotive numbered 885. This series of photographs appears to depict equipment being loaded on shipboard via crane, apparently during the era of World War I, in an east-coast port. If anyone knows more, add a comment. Larger versions will appear by clicking on the thumbnails. They're on the page in reverse order.
