A GT46ACe here in EVP yard (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

There is a GT46ACe parked in EVP yard here in town for four days. It came from EMD plant but is has some issues. I think it was sent there to repairs but VLI did not approve it. It will be sent to Divinópolis shops.

1- 3) Unit 8224 at EVP yard.

Always loved this meter gauge equivalent of the sd70ace. However, this one is missing a lot of parts - like the radiator cores and a fan.

Thanks for posting as always, Pedro.

In running condition Pedro, engine looks to be quite big and strong!

I see it has a runaround hose...must be very nearly an empty shell if they can't run air through it.

The air brake system was removed. It has no piston or pipes.
