Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wouldn't know, but wouldn't the firegrate be different between a coal or wood burner ? the wood grate being comparatively larger to get to the same calorific rate.

That would then imply a larger smokebox, something which this engine seems to lack.

But that's just a guess.

Exactly, same what I would have said. I add that I don't know, but suspect Cockerill didn't make wood-burners.
