Hi all,
I'm wondering if that cooked Richmond loco is a knock-off of an early Bury design from the UK. Several were exported to the US early on and their success led to the adoption of bar frames almost as a US standard design feature. 
The Bury locomotive design had inside cylinders and used haystack type boilers. the frim was finished by the early 1850's. Have a look at "Old Coppernob" in the UK.
