This loco is a typicla Diema product, where gear and drivetrain are on enclosed unit. It extends from the motor to the axles themselves and consists of sevaral conical gearwheels in an casing filled with oil. This way the disadvantages ofother types of drives (Chains, wchich can get dirty, break and get longer over time, or rods, which are very sensitive to bad maintanance) are mitigated.
For many years this was the typical advantage of diema locos, they where very robust.
Clearly visible on the foto is the breaking lever, which worked with a weight. This simple contruction made it possible to control the breaking force quite well.
