Pedro Rezende General EFVM is narrow gauge as you can see here (meter gauge). So, to get the same HP of original locomotives it is necessary to add more electric motors because the original ones can not fit into narrow gauge trucks. 3/9/2005 6:07:19 AM
Joe LeMay General Sweet! A lot more axles than if this was an American scene! Sweet to see Dash 9s with 4 trucks and SD45s with DD40-like trucks! 3/12/2005 11:12:25 PM
