    It is 750mm gauge loco, built by Baldwin in 1922.

    OK. Thanks. Essentially equivalent to what we would know as 30" gauge here.

    Is the turntable built on a grade?

    I don't think so, it is just the angle of the photo.

    Nice locos!:)

    1069 almost looks like a Shay. Am I seeing things or the cylinders are driving at least two jackshafts instead of the the wheels directly? The wheels that peek out from under the frame look a tad small for regular steam loco drivers too.

    You're seeing things. Specifically, you're seeing cranks outside the frame, on the ends of the axle. The Rio Grande K-36 class is the same way. Ever ride the Cumbers & Toltec, or the Durango & Silverton?

    So no, the wheels can't be driven directly because the cylinders are outside the frame and the wheels are inside. But the axles are driven directly enough; the cranks are built right onto the ends.

    Technically, no jackshafts. Just the usual driveshaft and connecting rods. But the driveshaft does look like a jackshaft because the cylinders are mounted above the cranks, at an angle.

    And yes, the wheels are small. Even measured by other locomotives that run on a gauge of 39" or less, they're beyond switcher tiny. If you're looking for speed, you're on the wrong page (so far).

    It certainly is unique as to anything I have ever seen. Where was it built? When? I am certainly curious...

    The cab and boiler look very European. British or French.

    I've never ridden any of the Colorado narrow gauge lines you mentioned...:( some day, perhaps!:)

    That I forgot. It was built by Kitson & Co. in the UK in 1890.
