A G16U modernized by EMD of Brazil
Author: pedrop

Hi, about two years ago Vale mining sent G16U 629 to EMD of Brazil to be modernized. I do not know the reason Vale did it. It can be a test to update the fleet of G12 and G16 that are used nowadays in MoW trains.
Yesterday, EMD released the G16 with a new cab and new eletronic devices inside. The unit was coupled to limestone train C764 and is on way to Aroaba port right now. 
Some pics.

1) The unit at EPM yard before to enter EMD gates in September 2021. Picture from friend Rodrigo Braga;

2) The unit inside EMD shops yesterday when VLI crew went there to remove it;

3) The unit at EPM yard. Picture from friend Waldemar Ogando.
