Designed to run backwards, the opposite direction to the way the guy is pointing. This is a highly unusual Meyer-type of steam locomotive of considerable historical significance - one of steam's strangest 'evolutionary branches' of development, which worked very well in South America. There were other types of articulated steam engines (with two flexible power bogies) which were built in large numbers for Southern Africa. But this photograph represents the 'beast' which suited the toughest possible railroading conditions of Chile, Bolivia and Argentina the best! Great to see it.
