"Ub" 371 (Richmond), a Ub steam locomotive, type 4-6-0, built by Richmond Locomotive Works, in 1901. Taken by an unidentified photographer, at the "PhotoChrome Engraving Co., N Y" in 1901, before the locomotive was delivered to New Zealand. The number "100" is on the driver's door, with "New Zealand Gov. Rwys" on the tender. This lettering appears to have been done in America, as the New Zealand Railways gave it the class and number "Ub" 371.
