I believe it to be an 0-6-0T (whatever that means.)

0-6-0 represents the wheel arrangement of no leading wheels, six powered and coupled driving wheels on three axles, and no trailing wheels.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

I'm not a trainspotter but I've been aware of the nomenclature for donkey's years. Yes, I'm a sad person  ;D

I actually knew the set-up Moz but couldn't remember what they called the front and rear wheels.

This was taken just outside Aljustrel, Portugal. It is/was a mining area, lead-zinc and some copper and manganese. These little engines were used to haul the spoil.

Taken a long distance from the castle at Silves last Friday.

Very good and the two views are coincidently very good as well.

Thanks for the info on the wheels Bob, but I knew  ;).
