    This loco has recently been extracted after many years buried in Ontario.....

    Apparently it's a Baldwin - originally an 0-4-2ST but later converted to an 0-4-0ST - which was delivered new in 1872 to the Great Western Railway (the Canadian one...).
    Seems to have ended its days with the Ontario Portland Cement Co.

    Found this image on the web, at Railway Preservation News, not sure what that is.

    A hose off and a coat of paint should do the trick.:):)

    Original wooden boiler lagging still in place, and gear in full forward ! A really interesting find.

    If Statfold had anything to do with it, it would be a fair bet!!

    What is the little cylinder between the wheels? Is that a mechanical injector?

    Brake cylinder? Looks like it's connected to the brake gear.
