A puzzle

Two photos here; one is my grandfather H J A of Inchicore with an odd cap and a scale model he made of a then-new convertible van which he had designed - they were built, I think, around 1905-1910 so that would date it.

This goods van model still exists and is with a relative.

The other photo is of a live steam locomotive under construction. But I don’t know what it was becoming a model of, nor what happened to it - as it was never in Senior’s possession (though several others were).

I’ve no idea who the bowler-hatted man in the picture is. I don’t think he’s a family member, so I assume he’s someone from Inchicore, as my grandfather was absolutely not a socialite of any sort! Quite the opposite….. however; for ten points, plus a bonus ball, what is the locomotive?

Picture about 1910.






Tempting to wonder if it’s some 4.4.0 he was designing or rebuilding in Inchicore at the time!
