I found the explanation in the comments: No catenary.
I wonder how it was fired as well.Saddle tanker? 'Fireless'? There is no distinct firebox and what seems to be the smokebox really looks small and 'boxy' to me, as in not drafting a boiler as we might expect out of familiarity. (Nothing so specific in the links.)
Note that lacking a fuel tender and with the cylindrical outer body extending to the rear of the cab I wonder if this is one of those engines into whom pre-heated bricks were loaded to generate steam. It would make sense to me for a lumbering operation for several reasons that come to mind.
