The first two engines are showing lots of rust and appear not to have been painted in many years. Don't they normally take better care of the engines than that?

Unfortunately VLI do not take care of the old units. In the past they were better maintained, but nowadays we perceive that even the new units need better care.

7 - 9) Two of these U20C's had air leaking when ready to departure the yard with a lime train, so they were uncoupled from the train and sent to the station area to wait for the mechanic.

Now is time for the videos.

27 - Train O781 at EVP yard. It is going to EKE yard to get containers and iron cast gondolas, that's why it has four units. It will come back with two DPU units.
