Thanks BarbaPanagos, some very interesting shots in that link. :)

There were over 700 of those MacArthurs built, they were used all over the world, obviously in Greece and Australia, as well as most narrow gauge railways of the Middle East, Asia, India and both North and South America.

700, a quite successful type! I only wish we had a preserved one like yours...
here is my view of the 7101 from February 2010
