Are these meter gauge with four trucks? Looks like a lot of room between the stepwells and fuel tank, but with the bolster location (where the tiedowns are) I'm thinking it has 3 axle trucks. Built in Brazil?

No, this is broad gauge (1,600mm). EMD of Brazil produced three Demonstrators like this. One is testing on MRS and two are rented to VLI.
