Kind of funky looking, especially the valve gear. I assume the pulleys are for the Heberlein brakes?

Yes on the brakes.

I always liked the Klose articulated locomotives, but the "klose" bits are non-functioning on the Accucraft model unfortunately.

MBV Schug (Accucraft.de) has done the IK, the IIIK as above and has since announced a VIK, which will also be offered in electric guise... but beware, they're built to 1:20.3. Nothing wrong with that per se, and Herr Schug vehemently defends the decision, but it means they're a lot taller/chunkier than the 1:22.5 rolling stock by LGB or Hilbert. He does offer the Frey models to go with the locos but there aren't many of them and the prices are truly eye watering.

Interesting information on Klose articulation. Learn something new every day.

How about doing its JZ-189 class cousin in IIm scale?

I have a Stainz here that may get the "Stütztender" treatment, similar to one of the Austrian Feldbahn RIIIc types that are still in museum service:
