The DDM45 are back! (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, after some months stores at Vale mining shops in Tubarao, some of the DDM45's were put to work again. Today two trains arrived in my area leaded by DDM45's. Train C611 with containers and GDE class gondolas were leaded by units 825 and 833. Here are some pics of them.
in spite of the return of them to the job, Vale has plans to scrap them this year. In May, EMD SD70ACeBB's Demonstrators will start the tests at Vale system. If approved, the DDM45's will be sent to EMD plant for scrapping.

Sad news that the DDM45s are for the chop, seeing them in 2006 was a great thrill.

Great shots. So odd to see them next to those tiny GE's.
