I think we are looking at history here. Most of our engines look alike a hundred feet away. There is a practical side to the short front ends. Nice pic!

Interesting shot. In your description of Congo however, you have got east and west mixed. It should be the other way.

Yes Carl Massart, if the South Atlantic is to the East, it means that the locomotives are in South America!

Thanks so much for your note Carl. I believe I have now made the necessary corrections to the caption.

Carl, Republic Of Congo or Democratic Republic of Congo? ">) (Just kidding, it would be the "ROC") I think Gabon is a significant petroleum producer as well. Since this is close to the equator, is the hoodlike, attachment above the light an additional protection against the heavy rains that area has?

So sad that one didn't even get a chance! It was dropped from the crane upon unloading and now almost every internal component and the frame will have to be scrapped.
