More SD70ACe/45 to VLI (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

VLI did an agreement with EMD for more broad gauge SD70ACe/45. New units are been built at EMD plant in Sete Lagoas, MG. Also, EMD is transfering the leasing of five former ALL units to VLI.
Yesterday, Rumo railroad started to move the former ALL units to Progress Rail shops in Hortolandia, SP.
At night, the special train derailed while crossing a fill that was damaged by the rain.

Hi, the crew is ok, but a bit more and the locomotives could roll over into the river...
