WDM/2 look-alikes in Peru

Indian locomotives  in far away Peru!

No, not really. The popular WDM/2 Alco design found favor in Peru as well, apart from India. Here are some pictures of locomotives with the WDM/2 design at work in Peru. The locomotives are almost identical in appearance to our beloved WDM/2 as well, barring the rail gauge and the fitment of additional headlights.

So go ahead, and enjoy!! Click on thumbnails to enlarge.
