It looks like it stopped one day and was just abandoned. Great find Nick.

Stuart Smith Thanks Stuart I guess that all locomotives stop one day never to move again, but who knows maybe someone will rescue this one some day.

Would make a fantastic conversation piece (coffee table?).

...wonder what the rings at the corners were for... propane tanks? What is it backed up against, Nick?

Bestist wishez. stacy

It does look as though there are carriages hitched behind Stacy.

Nick Weall on November 8

stacy metcalf It would be a rather large coffee table Stacy Being a diesel engine I don't see why it would need for propane tanks

Stuart Smith you are right, but they were little good wagons carrying wood

All the best to both of you ~~~ nick
