After its purchase by the Central Andino railroad in Peru, it was stored in the Guadalupe shops in Callao, near Lima, awaiting a future overhaul for mainline service in the Andes. The Guadalupe shops have recently been emptied. They will be destroyed so as to allow for an extension of the port of Callao, and new shops are currently under construction in Chosica. Further to the closure of Guadalupe the ex-NS 8209 was moved to the Patio Central yard where it is now sitting unused with several sisters, in-between two very different lives.
