One of a few similar "locos" built by Aveling & Porter, Rochester, Kent, England. No prizes for guessing their main product was road-going steam traction engines.

This one had a Fowler compound cylinder block, the only one so fitted. Built 1895, it ran until 1954 in service - now restored & occasionally steamed.













What do you notice about the motion ?
