Model (scale 1:8) of an American locomotive with tender. This is said to represent a locomotive built for the Erie RR in about 1875 and was made by by William R. Lendrum, a machinist in the railway workshops of the Delaware Lackawanna & Western RR in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The tintype photograph on the clack-box is thought to be of Ledrum: the photo on the smokebox is of Ulysses S. Grant, US President 1869-1877.
