Old and new EMD's (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, today I did a trip of 60 km from home to visit Sete Lagoas city. I took advantage of the trip to take a look at EMD plant located there.
1) A view of EMD plant;
2) It looks they are producing more SD70LC to MRS rr;
3) Old SD40's and a scrapped SD70BB stored near the road.

4) Another view of the SD70BB 8353. It is in a bad shape;
5) An old steamer in a bad shape at the railroad museum. Sad to see it being destroyed by vandals each day;
6) The plate.

19 - 21) I found the EMDX SD70ACeBB demonstrator at Prudente de Morais  (EPM). Nice to see old and new EMD coupled together.

22- 24) I like these EMD BB trucks. The look heavier than the ones developed by GE.

That's all for today.

I think won't be scrapped at all, but sure ir is strange she be sent to those tracks where we have old SD40's that will be used as core for electric "Joule" units. We can perceive the cover of the prime mover was changed scrapped or painted with a prime. It looks that area had a fire. Interesting to note what looks bullet holes in the cab as shown in the picture below.
29) bullet holes?

Thanks as always, Pedro. I love the SD70ACe-bb's. They're one of my favorite locomotives of all time :)
