Ah, but this loco IS almost English Herbie.

It was so obviously a Crampton (with or without patent permission) that I thought to try to identify it.

I believe this 6-2-0 may be  Locomotive No 30 of the Camden & Amboy RR.
The C&ARR had already imported an English loco, the John Bull. The C&ARR Chairman, one Robert Stevens, visited England in 1845 in his quest for a higher speed passenger loco and had been impressed by the high speeds attained by the Crampton Patent. This, I think, was Stevens' version of a Crampton copy.

More about Camden&Amboy's Cramptons can be read here. The Smithsonian also provides some interesting information about American Single-wheelers
