These SD39M-2 locomotives were rebuilt from GP38s and GP40s. Gary

They started life as MILW SDL39's 582-590.  They became WC 582-590 and were sold to Chile where they were regauged and rebuilg.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul

Chile had SD39M-2 locomotives. Does anyone have a side view of these locomotives and what was the engine in these locomotives. Gary
