This loco is relatively rare, not a large amount have been build. The German Company Kronke mostle build small locos, actually more like a motorised truck, called 'Lorenknect'. This loco is one of the few larger 'real' locos build by Kronke.

Because the loco has not been restored in working order she is preserved in a save and dry corner of the workshop, clearly the GSS recognizes the historical value of the loco!
