A number of American locos were delivered between 1918-1920, including two 0-6-6-0 Mallets which were originally destined for Russia. They reputedly worked heavy freight trains between Port Swettenham (Klang) and Kuala Lumpur until 1930.
The other picture, from J.A. Stanistreet's book, is presumable from the FMSR archives. The fencing around the footplate is a typical Russian feature. At least one locomotive of this type worked in the Philipines on a timber railway, and has been preserved.
