RFIRT locos being restored to operation
« on: February 27, 2016, 06:23:46 PM »
The "Steam in the America's" webpage has reported that RFIRT locomotives #119 and #107 are being returned to service for photo charters on its 100+Km, 750mm (2'5 1/2" gauge) coal RR between Rio Gallegos and Rio Turbio, Argentina.  See the link below for further information, including a short video of #119 pulling a 5-car passenger train.

The locomotives are 48 ton, Mitsubishi 2-10-2s.  The #107 was built in 1956 and the #119 was built in 1963.
