They weren't Little Joe's so BB didn't make the long trip ...
Author: valmont

Only info I have, add any if you can help ... found some info

FEPASA  #6101    8/83 Jim Claflin 
FCSUR  #2903  by Alan Miller (1949 built BLW-Westinghouse) 10/24/91 Llay LLay, Chile

n.b. since I don't believe I've posted on this forum previously I thought I should explain 'BB' That's for Bruce Black, a great friend and great RR photographer who passed away a few years ago.

Hi, these were the "V8" 2-C-C-2 of Ferrovias Paulistas SA - FEPASA in Brazil. We also had 2-D-D-2 "Russa"(Little Joe in USA). Some were preserved at Jundiaí SP museum.
More on its history in Brazil here

Amtrak should take notice. These look better than any of their locos. Thanks for posting.

It is in portuguese, so Google translator can help.

Notice the different pantagraphs. What voltage did they operate on down your way? Big time Juice! Love it.
