Davenport Saddle Tank Switching Locomotive, 0-4-0 ST, 1922

Summary

This locomotive is built for industrial switching service. Its gauge -- the width between its wheels -- is just two feet instead of the standard four feet, eight and one half inches. Instead of using a conventional separate tender, the locomotive carries water in a tank set atop its boiler and coal in a bin on the left side of its cab.
