I see my original post pointing out the error has been deleted.

No need to thank me Mr. Bach Mann for bringing it to your attention.

However, the correction still  contains an error as it refers to the locomotive as a "2-4-2" when it is in fact, a 2-4-2T.

An engine with the water supply carried in side tanks on the locomotive's frames is correctly and technically referred to as "Tank" engine and is described by affixing the letter "T" after the wheel arrangement.  Thus, "Lyd" and the other versions of this loco should be correctly described as a "2-4-2T".  Even the Baldwin catalogue described these locos as a 2-4-2T.

To omit the "T" and only use 2-4-2 describes a locomotive with a tender.

We stand corrected. As they say nobody's perfect, but we'll keep trying.......
