A Pechot-Bourdon loco in 009
A recent project was a Chris Ward Pechot-Bourden 009 loco kit with a Kato shorty chassis.
The Péchot-Bourdon locomotive was the final development of the Fairlie type. The Péchot-Bourdon was developed by Captain Péchot of the French artillery to operate on 600 mm (1 ft 11 5⁄8 in) gauge railways associated with field artillery and fortresses. The design was chosen with the belief that if one boiler or set of valve gear was damaged by enemy fire, the loco could continue to operate. The primary difference between a Fairlie and the Péchot-Bourdon is that the latter only had one steam dome. Only one design was constructed, a 0-4-4-0. About fifty examples were constructed in 1906, and a further 280 were constructed during World War I, some by the American Baldwin Locomotive Works. Two examples are preserved, one in Dresden Transport Museum, Germany, and one in Serbia at Pozega Railway Museum.
