Wordless, um, Saturday? #132

Wow - I was away on vacation and totally forgot to post a Wordless Wednesday last week. I don't think that's ever happened, no matter where I've been. So, to make up for it (and to ensure that my numbering remains intact at least...) herewith is Wordless Wednesday #132 - on Saturday (and with a few words to hopefully make up for the tardiness...)

I discovered this stove in the Chatham station. It's the same type as my stove - a Stamford Foundry Ledger B - but it's MUCH larger, hence a different model number (No. 14).

Here's my stove for comparison - a Ledger B No. 9. Clearly, the same stove was made in different sizes for different applications. The No. 14 was intended to heat an entire station whereas the No. 9 was sufficient for the crossing shanty it was put in. For more of that story, click here.

It sure would be cool to find and reinstall the neat guardrailings. Let me know if you ever run across such a thing.


  1. Hi Chris, I have a Ledger B. #16 that is 44 inches tall. It has the rails and is massive. Any ideas on its worth?
