|Guido Beck, of Argentina, provided the
following photos of three former Denver & Rio Grande Western GP40s
now working in Argentina. What makes these units so unique now, other
than being in Argentina after being in the Rockies, is they now have 66-inch
gauge 3-axle trucks!
The historic information about these units
is from Don
Strack's D&RGW information page which is copied here with permission.
Each one of these units was rebuilt by Conrail's Juniata Shops in Altoona,
PA and shipped without trucks to Argentina. There, they were equipped
with 66-inch gauge A-1-A trucks.
