Ok, One of you guys could have some fun with Photo Shop.  Take #10 remove tank and stretch the frame.  Modify a coach section and add to new long frame.  Put a flat water tank under coach section.  Put a small coal box on front of coach section.  Thus you have a steam power "Maine Tea Pot" (LOL).  Or, just take a Henschel tank engine and add a coach section.  The big roads did it and called them inspection engines, a coach section on the boiler.

Ira, That's a great link.  It looks like they're firing the locomotive with a table spoon ...  :)
