0-6-0 Surprise

I found this mystery 0-6-0 in lovely Cooperstown. I couldn't find a maker's plate or identification on it anywhere. It's in the middle of a farmer's market, so I felt strange about snooping. I'd love info, so I could put it here. This is the northernmost end of the line for the Cooperstown branch 16 miles from the Junction, on the defunct end of Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad.

From sources on the 0-6-0 was ex-U.S. Army. At some point, either served on the ex-NYC line out of Oneonta or on the Cooperstown Branch, She was converted to oil firing. Last steamed in the mid-1970s. She's for sale.
