VLI order EMD for SD80ACe's (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

I received a news that VLI ordered two SD80ACe's 5300HP to test at FNS railroad (broad gauge). They will be built at EMD plant at Sete Lagoas, MG Brazil like the SD70ACe/45.
The SD80ACe's were first produced to Vale mining by EMD in London, Canadá.

Pedro,

Any word whether these will have a broad gauge version of the fabricated radial truck as on the new Tier 4 locomotives or the standard non-radial cast frame truck?

Also, what is the total quantity of SD70ACe/BB locomotives ordered and delivered now?

Hi Dave, for while I do not have information about the model of the trucks they will use with the Sd80´s.
Today we had the first accident with SD70BB...two grains met in Aguaí, SP. Nobody injured.
