Let me guess,

they couldn't afford actual mechanical engineers,

so they hired an On30 kitbasher and a basket weaving instructor ...

The Estonian loco was peat-fired.

All the tenders of those had high stacking provisions.
When it tips over, the peat is still too wet to be used!

The Loco shown in tebee's post is an inspection engine IMHO.
You can see at least one longitudinal bench in the cab.

As there's only one driven axle,
makes my assumption even more feasible.

It drives on a layshaft - presumably chain drive to the wheels.

Was available with 4w and 8w drive options.

Ya know, that could apply to this little 4 wheel Soo Line caboose,
with its "too big for its body" cupola and sliding cupola windows via boxcar door hardware.

Just saw the Flicker album of John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library

How is it I have been on Flickr over a decade,
and did not know of this outfit's album on there !?!?!?!?!?

:doh:
