Heck this is just about prototype Gn15 https://www.facebook.com/ilham.rasoki/v ... 294280456/

And another https://youtu.be/8hsyLQTiTjg

I'm sure they are using 1:1 scale Black Beatle or Tensodo motor bogies :P :P

I've been doing some research, the railway is at Lebong Tandai and is now 600mm gauge but was originally 500mm. Once had a vast range of locomotives including some very usual Simplex.

The current rolling stock are known at Molek = Motor Lori Ekspres.

If it's the line I think it is it was originally overhead electric with little O&K locos.

I may have some photos somewhere.

Doubt if it was originally 50cm gauge, so googled it, and found this

Turn out the mine section was 50cm but the rest has alwaysbeen 60cm gauge.
I think if you exhibied a layout with these railcars(??), people would not believe they existed. Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction.
