It almost looks more like a wreck than like a proper working loco.

Two questions comes to mind. Where is the space for coal supply (water could be in the tank under the boiler)? And, if they had a seperate tender, how to shovel the coal?

Btw, it looks like the track is made of wood.

It's a builders photo, so it's brand new !
Apparently it had a wooden body in service, but no known photos of it survive.
Suspect it's on wooden rails as the builder didn't have 6ft Eire gauge tracks.

The photo appears to have been printed backwards.  Look at the engine number on the front of the boiler, and on the sand dome.  Engine # 632.

Hi all,
