I googled Adelaide Baldwin steam tram motor and it lead me to a couple
of Trove newspaper references.
See also "Trolley Wire", June 1978

"The Mitcham Company had also imported a Baldwin steam motor but its
use aroused considerable objection from upper-deck passengers and
passers-by. It was abandoned within a few months and after a period of
storage was sold to Sydney Ferries who used it from 1885 to 1937."
