This will, with a little luck be running on Ile du Présent in the near future.
Yes, I know it is German, but is in my opinion one of the most beautiful Mallet locos I've ever seen.

This looks as a Dunkirk variation but I have no idea if it is really the same concept.

These were designed by Schwartzkopff (also Germany) specially for dealing with very bad track condition in Afrikan plantations and had the engines in the boguies and were chain driven.
One of then ended in Paraguay, at 'Puerto Casado' where it was abandoned and finally cannibalized by the poor people in the area in order to get some money for the metal. Sveral went to Indonessia and. it is said, one went to Perú.

There is not photo distortion: these engines were designed to pivot on the bogies to compensate the unstable portable plantation track

Some of the Indonessian ones were very impressive

...but the most beautiful was -my opinion- the Paraguayan one:

But, whatever you do, you'll never find any loco more beautiful than this one:

This time a thread from a German forum.
No, I don't speak German at all but I've 'read' my first model railroading articles when I was still 5 and forced to ujnderstand the story from only seeing the images I don't see a reason not to enjoy a thread like the one you'll see clicking the link below.

It is H0 scale narrow gauge.
More preciselly 6,5mm gauge.

Here an appetizer

Here the thread (It is eight pages and really worth!!!)

https://www.stummiforum.de/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=92845


Now I'm going to see how to close my mouth.

Daniel, the Schwartzkopff locos are great! I wonder how one would appear on a US logging or mining tramway? The mind reels at the possibilities.
Thanks for the further education.

Woodie

I can't wait to see your version running on Big Bend!!!

Don't forget German companies made plenty of mining and other material specially for the US.
Orenstein & Koppel had even a special catalogue.
There is a public PDF version and I will see if I can find the link again.

I don't know of any of these chain driven locos went to the US but who is the one who decides at Big Bend? :wave:

Sorry, Woodie.
I forgot that my Yahoo doesn't exist any more and with it all my links vanished for ever.
I am 99% certain our fellow Tom Bell (Teebe) has the link. I think I've got it from him.
To comfort you a bit here another page from the Zschwartzkopff  (there are probably a dozen of typing errors in that name but I do what I can!) folder with a top view of one of the bogies

For our rich fellows here a place where to buy plenty of old n.g. catalogues:
