Kalahari #122 at speed
« on: January 08, 2017, 06:39:19 PM »
Nice short video shows South African Railways #122 at speed.  The loco is an NG15, 2' gauge 2-8-2 tender locomotive.  An interesting design point is the front pilot wheels and the lead driving wheels are actually set up like a 4 wheel truck to keep the fixed wheelbase as short as possible.
