Remarks & Notes 
59 years old General Motors Power

Between 1953 amd 1956 General Motors delivered 40 A1A A1A locomotives to Bangladesh (and Brazil). 59 years on a dozen of them was still in use hauling freight trains although the headquarters told us on request they where all withdrawn. Here seen from one of the clothing industry buildings in Dhaka on its way north. It took us a good while to persuade the security guards to let us on the roof of this building. They did not like letting see photographers their clothing indsutry. Three months later the Rana Plaza building collapsed and buried 1,138 textile workers. Reaching this position would probably have been impossible afterwards.

The container train is #802 from Dhaka ICD to Chittagong Port Yard.
