Ballast train V606 (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

On Tuesday 15, I found ballast train V606 arriving here in town with three BB40-9W's and a U20C. Actually, the U20C shown is the common units for this train, but that day it took a hide to three dash nine to EVP yard.

1 - 2) The train waiting licence to enter EVP yard. Vale EFVM 1202 is the last one to wear the old brown livery;

3) The train on track #3 passing by Liz cement factory.

4)  The last brown dash-9 and the guys putting grass into the car. I imagine they have horses at home;

5) V606 approaching the station where it was parked;

6) The train stopped.

Nice video, the VLI unit sure looks small compared to the other three units.

Pedro, do those big GE units have traction motors on all axels or just one per truck?

Hi tomstp,

They are 8 axles units.

Traction motors on all axels then.   Thanks.

Yes, I forgot to mention all the axles have traction motors. They are smaller, but they produce the same amount of power than the original ones. In the end, the adhesion is much better.
