Just a minor correction,
the boiler is a Horizontal Return Tube type.


Only came across two steam plants, with locomotive type boilers,
operated one plant with 5 boilers for a number of years.
 
The other was in Guatemala,
where two former boilers from NG 4-4-0s had been in service.
 
One of the 4-4-0 chassis was rebuilt into a shop engine,
for power for the overhead belt drive.

The shops is now a Railway museum in Sonsanate.
