Hello, I couldn't find out anything about this locomotive but it is an odd looking one. I don't even know what country it is from.
Thanks
David

Definitely non-US. You can almost read the builder's plate on the cab...

The Cardinal locomotive looks like the engines used in the Caribbean islands to pull cars of sugar cane, bananas, etc., to the market.

Only one postcard to include in this post, but I thought this effort was kind of interesting.

I recently found an online copy of an 1888 map of the Central Massachusetts Railroad:



Upon closer inspection, there were a couple of stops in Central Massachusetts that I didn't recognize by name -- Jefferson Station (still an active town with a post office); Muschopauge Station; and Coldbrook Station, which prompted some interesting results:



First, what was Jefferson Station is a partially restored, yet abandoned building today:



Second, Muschopauge Station, a part of Rutland, MA, had a large hotel and sanitarium in the area back in its day (later a Mental Hospital), however, I did find this postcard that shows the long gone station back in its heydey:



I couldn't find all that much about the Coldbrook Station (actually, Coldbrook Springs, Mass.) except that the post office was discontinued in 1931, then I found this memorial to the demise of the town in 1930:



All in all, quite an interesting study in three long abandoned Massachusetts train stations!

Hmmmmm... may have to look into that Jefferson station! It is odd that Central Mass stations still stand in Weston and Wayland... I think Sudbury as well. Berlin has one where the line crossed over the "Ag Branch", which is still used by CSX.

Here are a few railroad related cards I got only about three weeks ago from a local collection. The one with the train wreck is not identified, but, the one car reads "Grand Trunk", so, I can assume it was anywhere in North America wherever they had tracks and runs etc.

Nells250, The Salem Ma RR station postcard is so cool. Hope the building is still standing.

Unfortunately, no. The old station was torn down in the 1950s. Here's another picture of it in its heydey:



Here's a contemporary news article on what they found buried there:
