road Co. has completed a locomotive,
the liko of which has never been put
on a railroad before. Its appearance
is odd and attracts a great deal of at
tedtion. The locomotive, tank and
place to carry coal are together, there

The locomotive proper is smaller than
the regulation size of large class loco
motives, but with the tank it is longer.
It weighs about 1C0.00C pounds. The
locomotive has six "drivers." The
front truck has two wheels and the
rear truck", on which the tank rests,
has six. It is a compound engine, and
