What kind of Locomotive did I see?
Author: Jeff

I recently saw a video about the reopened Guyaquil and Quito railroad in Ecuador.  The train shown was a tourist train hauled by a curious loco.  It appears to have a B-B-B or three truck wheel arrangement.  Can anyone tell us about the make, model and other information about this engine?  Thaks, Jeff

Did anyone try Googling "locomotives Ecuador" in Google Images?

Looks like the Alstom/Sulzers are withdrawn.
