Milstead Railroad 104 (0-6-0)

This switcher with a slope-backed tender was built by Rogers in 1905. It was operated by Milstead Railroad, serving the Milstead textile plant near Conyers, Georgia. Numbered 104 and nicknamed "Dinky", this engine is on display at the Conyers depot. As is often the case, the fence around the display interferes with a clear view of the locomotive.
This is a nice example of a slope-backed tender.
Here are are some detail shots of the locomotive, including the injector and reversing mechanism on the right side, the air pumps on the left side, the right hand cylinder, and the backhead.
