Huh... I was a little thrilled at first sight, then I googled for mr. Buster Keaton and my pulse returned to normal: these beauties (the first 2) are not "The General" locomotive type as I thought.

The first is is a K27 "Mud Hen". The Rio Grande designed them to carry a full sized boiler on a narrow gauge frame to give the more power. The frame is on the outside of the drivers.

The second is a classic Dixie Belle Ten-Wheeler.

The General is a standard 4-4-0.
