MUSKETEER

 

Designed by N.A. Dadd and built at Boot Lane Workshops in 1888.
Constructed with an unusual “T” boiler that is essentially a cylindrical vertical boiler, with a short (four-foot-long) horizontal firetube barrel, that was designed to eliminate most of the stay work found in the more conventional boiler. Outside frames and a variation of Marshalls valve gear, make for a very sturdy, economical and easy to maintain steam tram. Carrying a large sandpot on top of the boiler, together with a brass bell, while an ornate livery and huge wooden “dumb” buffers, complete the overall finish.
