maybe it's Toyota's answer to Suzuki's Mighty Boy?
Hiding in the shed covered in grease and muck - want a coffee?

Bobsboy, those SCT Locos are MTU 20V4000 powered chinese built and cheap compared to others on the market. Since being put into service SCT has had more strife than the early settlers with every part of the Locos except the engines although engine problems have occurred thanks to a sub standard cooling package. I think SCT have 10 of them and 7 are parked up. SCT runs 3 Locos on each run with only 2 engines running and the third Loco is backup for when a generator explodes or a traction engine spits the dummy. But they were cheap.

Well, technically speaking, with the locomotives in that configuration, the train could be headed east or west and is probably set up that way so it doesn't have to be turned around.... ::)
