While doing this research, a number of oddballs turned up including these Cockerill shunting locomotives with a vertical boiler which is enclosed within the cab. They are by no stretch of the imagination steam tram locomotives but they are curiosities which most serious students of the subject would find interesting, hence their inclusion on this separate page. Although Cockerill was the major builder, others got into the act including Cail and Five Lilles (http://www.irsociety.co.uk/Archives/8/french_vertical_boilered.htm).

The page with the larger image carries the name of the photographer concerned, as you will see further pictures are needed. If you can fill the gaps (more than all the other pages put together!) or provide an alternative larger image approx 800 x 600, please get in touch using the email address at the bottom of the page.
