The 11 yr restoration work on No. 9010, the last survivor of 37 German-built Krauss-Maffei ML 4000 C’C’ diesel-hydraulic locomotives in the United States and Brazil, is nearing completion, and mostly finished when the locomotive made its official inaugural runs July 20-21 2019.
The locomotive has also undergone a complete cab rebuild, a re-fabrication of its hood and pilot, installation of a “new” used C-C rear truck repatriated from France and a restoration to its 1964 appearance. The engine is undergoing a complete rebuild of the top as well as installing a hydraulic pump to drive cooling fans
