John may well be right here. Hard to tell the gauge from the photos. There is a bogie wagon in one of the photos if someone could work out the type. I suspect that the loco was built by the US army to assist in a US army base. Where were they located? Those who know jeeps well should be able the work out the gauge. What was the 'gauge' between the tyres on a jeep?

Sitting here in a hotel room in Cepu, central Java, Scott Jesser and I
suspect that the Queensland photos might have been taken at Clapham where
transhipment from standard gauge would have been necessary.
Can anyone confirm?
