Intriguing. I've never seen one like this before. Is the front section a separate power unit, or is it all one locomotive?
It is an intriguing design steam engine but was made for long haul freight.

The AD60 Class 4-8-4+4-8-4 Beyer-Garratt patent consists of a boiler carried on a separate frame in the centre of the locomotive and supported by the frames of the two engines, one at each end. The locomotive thus consists of three parts: a water tank, a fixed chassis supporting a boiler and a rear engine unit carrying a coal bunker and water tank. The standard gauge coupled axle loading of 16 long tons (16.3 t; 17.9 short tons) and able to negotiate 6-chain (120 m) curves.

Here is the water tanker at the end (but looks extra long with the wide angle lens used).
