Remarks & Notes 
With the late sun of an early Summer afternoon still shining in the sky, General Roca Railroad's nameless train number 328 leaves Bahia Blanca Sud station with Baldwin RF615E #7018 for power. Train was the all-stops local running over the General Lamadrid alternate route between Bahia Blanca and Olavarría, while the mainline route (through Sierra de la Ventana and Coronel Pringles) linking the same cities was served with the nighttime express schedule of trains numbers 325 and 326 "El Bahiense". Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton's Eddystone (Pa.) Plant delivered the 1.500 HP shark-nose-like diesel in September 1953, a member of a 51-unit order which was to become the world-only examples of the model RF615E ever built.
