Is it a PR22 model? EMD of Brazil has PR 22 in its chart of models. One unit was built powered by batteries and received the name of "Joule".

  TRE  # 569 came in last year for a major rebuild and a repaint and its almost done.  there were 2  TRE  units that Progress Rail rebuilt and painted. 
   Thanks too all for looking and commenting. Chris

It's nice to see the local shop busy and that Tacoma Rail is investing in locomotives.

Interesting to see a unit still in the "old" FNM colour scheme.
