Thanks for the clarification MTP #T14 weigh 1.65 US tons and is able to move all the motive powers even the big #12 21US tons but for this one it  required quite a lot of sand on the rails and some skill and practice. By now when they need to move #12 they use  a more powerful diesel engine. # T14 is also able to haul a few small open cars.

It's a bit too small to move a cold steam engine.  It struggled to move #10, it can't move #9.

Thank you so much Brendan for sharing those great B&W pictures that take the away crowd way back in the 30's. I do like the one taken from the top of the tankcar.

That kind of small engine is very usefull. Always ready to give a hand to move a  cold steam locomotive or a car on the yard and I think it's easy to drive. We have such a small diesel engine at AMTP built in 1920 MTP# T14 and it's the first motive power a volunteer is entitled to drive. It underwent a general overhaul except for the engine in 2014.

Just amazing. Come to think the framework was being assembled in July 2020.
