After 50 Years since they arrived in 1971-75 they are still preforming.Loved by the crews ( Compared to the invaders from china)
In the 50 years I ran them, I never had a breakdown, to me a testement to a fine Machine. long live the "Dixies" as they were nicknamed!

Nice clean lines on those machines. 'Not sure about the horn placement on the #5016, though. No naps on that unit... LOL.

Nixe series. We had U26C in Brazil. Nowadays there is just one unit in Vale mining fleet, but it has a GM G12 prime mover.

Horn placed in this position, for any long hood running, which was very rare. You never realy noticed it when sounded.
