 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  Today's image is another of the small Porter locomotive that I get to help fire on.  Porter's carry their water in a tank that goes over the boiler and the coal is carried in a small bunker on the back of the locomotive eliminating the need to pull a tender.  They were built by the H. K. Porter company and were mainly used as switchers or in coal mines or on sugar plantations due to the small amounts of fuel they can carry and their small size.  It's quite a fun locomotive to fire on.


  1. Looks and sounds like a neat "little" locomotive

  2. I agree with Jim. That looks like a neat locomotive to get to work on.
