Post an image of the oldest locomotive within 100 miles (160 km) of where you live.

Pic related was built in the 1880s and is the oldest in peninsular Florida.
Does that even qualify a engine being in such a state of disrepair?

All the major railway and technical museums seem to be in the Oslo area. The only older locomotive in Trondheim seems to be this narrow-gauge engine from 1924 owned by the local technical university.
Not even close to oldest if you’re in Hongcouver
Old Curly was built in 1859
Is 4014 done yet?

12 Km away from my home is a big park called Taman Mini Indonesia Indah and it also housed a Transport Museum and the oldest locomotive in the collection is a British-built 2-4-0 from 1880

Regular updates
There are so many museums around here I can hardly keep track. This is probably one of the older ones, a small narrow gauge locomotive built in 1888.

oldest running steam locomotive in Australia
Heritage Village is comfy tho
And I believe it’s free now.
I'm surprised there isn't anything older in the area. I checked RMNE and their oldest is the Sumpter and Choctaw #103 built in 1925.
The oldest preserved locomotive in Croatia, nicknamed "Crna Katica" - "Black Katica"
Locomotive 125-052, built by MAV – Budapest in 1891, originaly locomotives in this series were marked as MAV 326

A locomotive that went through all stages of 20th century Croatian history:

The type was primarily built for pulling freight trains, but they were also used in local passenger transport. In 1918 more than 50 locomotives of series 326 were in use in Croatia, later this locomotives were renamed into JŽ 125 series.

During WW2 the locomotive was used for transporting prisoners to the first concentration camp "Danica" in the NDH, so called "Independent State of Croatia".
(About 3.000 Serbs, 1.000 Croats, 600 jews and 400 gipsies were brought to their execution site).

Later in war damaged by Ustsha bombardments because it stood on territory that was temporarily occupied by Partizan guerilla units.

After WW2 used for things like transporting gravel for construction of the Zagreb - Beograd highway, in operation until the 70s, Overhauled, restored and put on public display in 1981 on the grounds of the memorial site of the former concentration camp "Danica".
1992 until today transferred to Zagreb and installed at the city's main station.

Not sure if living within 100 miles of London is cheating but nonetheless.

Puffing Billy

Holy shit I've seen that bad boy? I have family in London so it was free except for fuel.

What a beauty
I bet I can rebuild that. I can fix anything in my shop. No car nor truck I couldn't save from total destruction. The size might pose a challenge.
