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.

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