When the train is faster than the cell phone (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Today morning I was doing my daily walking on a road near the tracks here in town when I heard the sound of a train coming from behind. It was the L444 with two Vale BB40-9W and two VLI U20C in a hurry to fuel the tanks in EWL yard,  about 20 Km ahead. I almost had no time to open the cell phone camera to register it. Here it is what I did.

Two main reasons: 1st,  to better distribute the weight on narrow gauge tracks. 2nd, to allow them to run on tight curves. With four smaller traction motors, they have the same tractive effort of a normal C-C diesel of its class, a bit better adhesion  provided by the eight axles.
