The local here in town (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, some pics taken today evening here in town. The yard switcher working in EVP yard. At a crossing level, the traction motors touches the ground due to broken ties.

What size wheels are in the Flexicoil trucks? What are the two gauges on the dual trackage?
Thank you for sharing the pics and taking the time to shoot the engines.

That can't be good on the traction motors.

The meter gauge U20C uses F36 type wheels (36").
The gauges here are meter gauge (1,000mm) and broad gauge (1,600mm).

Maybe Union Pacific should contact them for some 36" wheels for the E units.
