Remarks & Notes 
Performing as Coronel Lynch Shops's switcher, General Urquiza Railroad's Dick-Kerr electric motor #908 moves Japanese-built Toshiba EMU #3810 away from one of the Shop's bays. The standard-gauge electric motor was able to collect energy only through her trolley pole, and so was confined to operate exclusively in Shops and yard trackage since the mainline tracks had third-rail but no overhanging wires.
