Loco in So. Casco, ME

What is this "locomotive?" displayed in front of a hobby shop in So. Casco?

Looks like a real boiler (maybe from a traction engine.) Pilot is bogus, and I have my doubts about the cylinders.

It is just a display. Replica. No real parts. Looks good from a distance...

I don't know, I'm looking from Virginia and it still needs something.

The Loco is just a homemade display. Too bad that the brass bell and boiler plate were stolen off it about  a year and a half ago. Other than the whistle which is rusted on hard are the only real locomotive parts that were on it. And at that, I am not sure that the bell and whistle were real locomotive parts or were they came from.The Maine Central speeder is the real thing and with a little love could come back to life.

Actually, I'm just jealous that it's not in my front yard. Or much grass, for that matter.
Perhaps if I were to apply my horticultural expertise to the W.W.&F. right-of-way, you'd never have to trim again!
