The MaK G 1201 BB is a four axle B'B' diesel-hydraulic off-centre cab locomotive built by the Maschinenbau Kiel in German. The locomotive is designed for shunting and freight work, such as found on industrial railways.

Description[edit]

Only one example of this locomotive was built, later orders for a similar purpose were fulfilled by the MaK G 1203 BB which replaced the MTU 331 engine with a MTU 396 engine of increased power.

The locomotive has worked since 1980 at Solvay's plant nr. Rheinberg, Germany.[2]
