which US railroad company made the highest quality steam engines back in the 1930-50's?

Two different things.

Locomotive manufacturers included Lima, Baldwin, Alco and others, all of highest quality and cutting edge technology for the day, such as incorporation of roller bearings.

Some railroads did make their own locos, too. Not too familiar with other carriers, but the SP had major shops in Sacramento, LA, Houston and San Antonio in Texas and Pine Bluff Arkansas. The Sacto shops were turning out locos of SP design very early on. "El Gobernador" with a 4-10-0 wheel arrangement was the largest loco in the world when it was out-shopped in 1882, and the very prolific Stevens valve gear was designed by A J Stevens, SP Master Mechanic at Sacto.

Addendum:

And I agree with the gentleman below. Baldwin was the king of the heap.

Wanna have some fun? Ask someone which was the most powerful loco produced by an American manufacturer?

You'll hear, Big Boy, Alco Big Boy, UP big Boy, Big Boy, Big Boy Big Boy...

Get them to bet on it. The higher the better. Because they are wrong, wrong, wrong.

Then tell them about the Baldwin built M3 Yellowstones of the Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range

The Big Boy Cylinders (4) 23.75" x 32"
The M3 Cylinders (4) 26" x 32"

Big Boy Driving Wheelbase 36'6"
The M3 Driving Wheelbase 45'7"

Big Boy Engine & Tender Wheelbase 117' 7"
M3 Engine & Tender Wheelbase 113' 6"

Big Boy Boiler Diameter 95"
M3 Boiler Diameter 104"

The Big Boy Weight on Drivers 540,000 lb.
The DM&IR M3 Weight on Drivers 560,257 lb.

and for that reason

The Big Boy developed tractive effort of 133,375 lb.
The Baldwin Built M3 Yellowstones of the DM&IR got ya 140,000 lb.

The UP Big Boys were a couple feet longer, and a little heavier in overall weight (64,000 lbs), but that is where their claim to fame ends.

The Big Boy did have one thing in advantage over the M3s. They were released with great fanfare and a well organized PR campaign.

Now.
