Flywheel drive in a dismantled TRIX Express prototype BR01 4-6-2 pacific steam loco with tender, created by Bern Tauert (Germany)

 

 

Articulated diesel loco prototype (derived from V200), from the drawings by Krauss-Maffei (Germany), but never actually built. Made by the same Swiss enthusiast who exhibited the dramatically shortend version of the V200 last year. Notice the 4-4-4 construction using a Jacob's bogie in centre position.
