Prototype Info

The Gmeinder BDM 80PS feldbahnlok were a 80hp locomotive produced in Germany for the military between the wars in both 600 and 760mm gauge. It was the most powerful of their 600mm range, weighing nearly 10 tons and was unique in providing drive through a central gearbox and jackshaft drive via the coupling rods. Only one prototype has been preserved, and this is now believed to be in France.
