>The photo in Dan's post is an NRE unit. I would hazard a guess that this is what the WP&Y units are going to look like (more or less) with some probable clearance mods.

I would disagree with your conclusion. True - this was a NRE owned unit after retired/sold by DRGW/UP, but it was a stock EMD SD40T-2.

To my knowledge, all the used EMD or GE US/Canadian locomotives that various Brazilian companies were buying at surplus auctions and importing were rebuilt to either meter or broad (63") gage by the various own railroad's shop in Brazil.

NRE and MPI (was Wabtec now Wabtec/GE) have both built new 42" gage units for Australia in the last few years, in addition to EMD (Progress Rail/Caterpillar) and GE (now part of Wabtec) normal export business of various models including narrow gage.

The most powerful diesel-electric narrow gage locomotive I am aware of is the GE ES43bbi being built by GE Brazil for meter gage. 221 tons, 4500/4300 hp, AC traction motors for 132,000 lbs continuous tractive effort.
