    Hi friends,

    As I said in the thread Braziilian diesels, I live in southeast Brazil and here we have some interesting railroads. My area is served by bolth meter and broad gauge, so we have a third rail on most lines here. [​IMG]
    EFVM and FCA are great meter gauge companies and bolth use locomotives with BB+BB trucks. EFVM has BB40-9 and BB40-9W made in Canada, BB40-8 made here in Brazil and almost 100 BB36-7 rebuilt from old US B36-7 and C36-7. It also have BB45-2 rebuilt from old ATSF SD45-2. But the most interesting locomotives of EFVM, to me, is DDM45, a narrow gauge version of standard SD45 that uses D-D trucks, like old UP and SP DD35.
    FCA has a lot of locomotive models, but it also have locos with BB+BB trucks. The company bought 11 SD40-2 from CP and UP and 19 SD40T-2 from DRGW and SP and rebuilt all them to BB+BB. So, now we have BB40-2 and BB40T-2 running here. Now they are the longest locos in Brazil now, with almost 26 meters long.
    I intend to post pictures of them here, but I really do not know how. This forum is a bit different from the others I usually post pics. I can´t find the upload button to search my pictures. Where is it? :confused:

    Pedro:

    There are four guys who monitor this forum. They can go into one of your posts and modify it so you can see how they posted a picture. Those guys are from the UK or Australia and they are asleep right now.

    I am trying to think of something. Those guys can help you tomorrow when you will be asleep. [​IMG]

    Here is the proper link between the "img." Notice the first { is incorrect. If I changed it to [, it would give a photo.

    I have no idea. They've not been deleted. I see a read "X" showing. Which means the image URL you posted is still there. Possibly there is a problem outside of TrainBoard, that has broken the link for now.
