Do you want some more of these - I have a fair number in my collection too.

I bet that thing put some severe twisting stresses on the underframe of that cuitie on the sharp curves of the day. Also likely that they use a coach that had seen some service.  Doubt that coach truck had a side sliding kingpin, so service life was probably short---but a neat little thing, nonetheless.

Don't think those 1865 engineers were all dumbnuts. The loco can swivel vertically around its driving axle

A very logical way of avoiding the problem, Helmut, but how do you know that it was applied in this case? I looked for that very thing before posting and could see no evidence.

@Herb
it is 'educated guessing'
1. from the photo, showing some space between the boiler and the superstructure.
2. taking into account, because anything unarticulated that long would have jumped the rails at the first kink, the guys in the shop would have hastened to find a remedy.
3. the photo is proof for case 2, because the contraption obviously has seen some service when the photo was taken.

South Australia had something similar on the Pichi Richi line.
