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:
