I like G12 a lot. I remember the time they run as main power in the railroads here. Now they are yard switchers or workinig in MoW trains. Only EFDTC railroad use them as main power.

If you have a chance, open a thread to here to show us some of these slides. It is always nice to see old pictures.
At this time, Vale mining is sending four G12 to work as yard switchers in my area. Vale has the best G12 here in Brazil. Its maintenance team is of first quality.
