Ron Moraca General Bi*chin' photo and location, Rodrigo. I've never seen an ex-CP Rail BB40-2 modified that heavily before. Four 2-axle trucks!? WOW!!! 2/29/2012 7:48:51 PM
Rodrigo Matheus General Thank you! It is in Brazil where locomotives rebulit the truck. This modification improves the performance curves in the stretch metric gauge. The truck's BB only has one disadvantage, in the rain locomotives slip a lot. 3/1/2012 10:17:11 AM
