I think the 73xx series were originally Conrail or LMS owned locomotives that CSX received when CSX and NS split Conrail.

And how do they plan to get them through the tighter loading gauge? They had to do a lot of work on the C39-8's, so they might have some funky work to do here (if they plan to run them over the entire system)

They might want to rethink sitting the brake rigging down on the blocks.

Their paint looks to be in excellent condition.  Hopefully their mechanicals are equally good.

For a spread of 10 photos at Callao.

Latinos are well practiced in giving geriatric Yankee motive power buzz cuts to fit their loading gauges. Work back through the above photo file for examples.
They will probably be geared back to around 35 mph, you do not require fast locos to navigate spiral staircases.
Fuel capacity will also be restricted, long range is not required so why carry excess weight?
