      Four are preserved actually, five if you count the Mills A. Not bad
      considering only 14 were built in 1873. They were too small for the big
      railways - which weren't all that big physically in those days - and
      the first was sold in 1886 and the last was sold in 1906 mostly to coal
      mines, freezing works, saw mills etc.
      A mate of mine fired the A at Ocean Beach - the one in the pics - and
      he didn't like it at all - awkward to fire and a struggle to maintain
      pressure. Much preferred the Kerr Stuart.
