That loco No. 1 is interesting.  Mechanical X head boiler feed pump instead of steam injector - due to dirty &/or saline water supply perhaps ?.

Also what look like 4 bolt buffer blanking plates exactly where European/UK style buffers might have once been mounted, complete with the buffer beam side chains. Riveted, non-welded saddle tank. I don't recognise the make/model of loco - vaguely 1880's - 1890's French manufacture, maybe ?.
