Bruce Carrick is quite correct. It is four feet three inches gauge. I've corrected this in the data to read 51".

The original 'Stourbridge Lion' was imported from the UK, built in 1829, and a sister of the UK National Railway Museum's 'Agenoria'. A photo of the latter can be seen by browsing Europe>UK>Yorkshire and scrolling down to the NRM's collection.

Built by Delaware & Hudson RR, 1932 and loaned to Wayne County Historical Society. Appeared in Chicago and New York World Fairs in the 1930's and 40's (that I know of). Cylinders are 8.44 x 36".

When this locomotive was first made, it was too heavy for the track (nearly twice the weight the builders had promised.) It was soon laid agaist the tracks as a staionary boiler.
