Alcoy Gandia 2-6-2T “Cocentaina”

With Graham Nixon’s contribution of the photo below of Alcoy Gandia 2-6-2T “Cocentaina” has reached a tiny milestone. We now have photos of 7600 different steam locomotives. Not 25,000 photos of 300 different locomotives as one site proudly boasted not too long ago. Many thanks to Graham for the photo.
