There were a lot of odd looking locomotives built by Baldwin. As GG14877 mentioned, many of them were exports to countries down south and were used on large plantations.

Check out this The Locomotives That Baldwin Build by Fred Westing (and no it's not $437, look at the used books option). It has pictures and stats of over 300 locomotives that were build at Baldwin over the entire span of the company's history, including many unique locomotives.

I did not see or ride behind one of those on the Ffestiniog....worse luck.  I wonder if any standard, or even narrow, gauge ones were sold to CONUS lines.? Would not be surprised to learn a few hauled sugar cane in Hawaii.  I encountered more than one teakettle RR in Wales, and wonder if there is a guidebook of them?  A reason to bat past the station with the longest name in a rental car .."Aieee!  Keep to the left!  Keep to the left!"

Five were built in England for Canadian Railways, all narrow gauge:  Toronto & Nippising (1,) Toronto, Grey & Bruce Railway (1) and Cape Breton Island Railway (3.)

Mason built one in 1887, but I have no idea who, if anyone bought it.
