A new GMD London-built EMD G12 for the Mogiana Railroad Company in Brazil (Companhia Mogiana de Estradas de Ferro) numbered 3009 is seen loaded on CN flatcar 663593 at Mimico Yard with trucks on an adjacent flat, being handled by CN enroute for export to Brazil in 1957.

Unit 3009 was part of a 25 unit order of G12's built for Mogiana RR at GMD London between April and July of 1957 (that followed an order of five units, 3001-3005, that were built at EMD La Grange the same year).

  1. I love how those wooden blocks are placed to balance the locomotive with no trucks.

    Were these tested out at the plant on the original trucks or different trucks?
