Short presentation:

With the switcher Breuer, the Saviem-Latil is a switcher that touristic railways never buy. And when they do it, then it is to use them as static machines. The brand Saviem was by far more notorious for their buses. This switcher uses some technical solutions from them: for example it uses tires which confer it a high tractive effort despite a very moderate total weight. Its engine Fulgor with 4 cylinders and 63kW allows a quite comfortable use.
