Looks like somewhere between the draft table and assembly plant,
a set of drivers got lost and nobody noticed/cared.

Or it was the first steam loco intended to do wheelies.

Jose.

Think this was named a "Bicycle" type.

Maybe somewhat modernized,
as these things were often built without cab in the early days.

Maybe they extended the mudguard back,
to gave it more the appearance of a "real" locomotive.

This was the first locomotive on the Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad,
named the 'Thomas James'. 

The original Daguerreotype was sold at Christie's in 2015 for $17,500 !

Not been able to find the builder yet,
but suspect it might be a British or a US copy of an early British loco.

This is definitely a 'Planet' (or a copy thereof )
as you can judge by the frame and wheel arrangement.

The Planets I know of did not have that high a steam dome above the firebox,
but even the replica of MOSI's has one higher than I've seen on others' drawings.

I stand corrected.

A "Bicycle" is a 4-2-2 locomotive,
the Philadelphia & Reading used this Arrangement.

Found this lately:

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/10/37/61/103761fdd7f0d3fc6d7ec6efcdc12de0.jpg

It looks like the drive and pilot wheel are flangeless,
and there are wheels at an angle to the rails at the front and end.

I don't know what the advantage of that would be.

And also this but it could be PhotoShopped.

A climax with double pistons?

Maybe someone over here could tell if this is fake or not.
