Here's a video I found of a 2 footer in Burma, hauled by steam. Keep an eye out for the mag phones!:

I like the safety-first positioning of the rail friction technicians. Also, the little man who periodically comes out and squats on the running board while winding up the lubricator. Full crew! I think, with a little paint, a new cab and a 6 number plate, W.W.& F. could have a winner there! Of course, you'd have to build a bunkhouse for all those Burmeseights.

Hansel,

I noticed a desk model, perhaps a Leich 901, at 1:30, plus of course the great one at the end. Neat!
Thanks for the pointer; steam and mag phones!  Grin

To paraphrase Monty Python:
  Pepperpot 1: "What's on the telly?"  Huh
  Pepperpot 2: "Looks like a penguin!"  Grin

  Pepperpot 1: "BURMA!!" Angry
  Pepperpot 2: "Why did you say 'Burma'?"  Huh
  Pepperpot 1: "I panicked!"  Undecided

Check out the loop, watch out for the mule and our model t is too small.

I do like that loop! I believe the truck is an older model Athearn, based on the rubber-band drive. Not sure who built the mule.
