Just found this pic:

Most likely very narrow gauge. Does anybody have more info about it?

I can't place the actual locomotive, but it looks similar to South African Class NG15 locomotives.  Both have outside frames, both sport big, boxy tenders, and both are mikado class, 2 foot gauge engines. The only difference, near as I can tell, is that NG15's don't have side tanks, but the one you posted does.

Heck Jose, that photo might be the manufacturer prototype or a photo from the Henschel and Son Company catalog.

BTW, some locomotives of the NG15 class were converted to Cape Gauge (42 inches), but all were originally 2 foot gauge

Otherwise, my second guess is the Mexican Hornos Railway, which had a Baldwin 2-8-2 locomotive named "Juana".  Said to be the only 2 foot gauge mikado built in north America.

Juana
Hor 4 Baldwin 21825 3/1903 2-8-2 According to Gerald M. Best in his 1968 book Mexican Narrow Gauge, this was the only 2-ft gauge 2-8-2 that was ever built for use in North America.From:  http://riptrack.net/book/export/html/218

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornos_Railroad

The only thing that doesn't make sense is that the "A" logo in the photo doesn't make any sense for a Mexican railroad.

Belgian Congo I think, 60cm gauge. Bagnall maybe?

Will try and look it up.

IMHO the logo verifies that this is a manufacturer's photo. It is very similar to the first Aston-Martin's:shocked:, but of course this is pure coincidence. I think it is Belgian built by Atéliers de la Meuse, but could not find their logo dating from the 1900's
