Baldwin NA Class locos in action

Lyn was similar in general appearance, although smaller, to the NA class of 2-6-2Ts supplied to the Victoria Railway in Australia in 1898. Several others were built locally, to the same design, up to 1915. Although the two originals have not survived, several of the others are still operating. Here are some of them.
