Boston and Maine No. 410, now parked along Dutton Street at Merrimack. This six-wheeled “steam switcher” was built in 1911 by the American Locomotive Company in Manchester, NH. It weighs 74 tons. Photos by Tony Sampas.

I remember the steam engines fired by coal in the bleachery train yard when I was a boy. If you had your cloths out on the line, the coal dust would settle on them.
Thanks for the memory John.
