Can anyone identify this Greek (OSE) EMD?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Can one of you'll identify this Greek (OSE) EMD locomotive (see images). All I know is that it resembles our INDIAN RAILWAYS WDP-4 diesel electric locomotive. Google failed miserably. I'd be happy if someone can shed some light on this loco and give me a few details like it's designation and type of service. I'd also like to see a few more pics of the side.

I am making HO scale Indian models and the WDP-4 is on my list. Would surely love to make a few mods and make a static model of both these Greek locos.

Looking forward to some help.

Thanks in advance.

looking up 060DS gives this thread which indicates it might be Algerian rather than Greek! (scroll down a bit). Scroll down even further, and there's one in a train with some UK class 66s for DRS, presumably on delivery from the N American works!


plus some on this page (in Hungarian unfortunately), but clearly N Africa - scroll down and I think it says introduced in 2008


and a youtube

 where I got an error part way through.

As eastwestdivide suggests, I don't think these are Greek!

While I may not know everything about Greek railways & locos by a long shot - I'm sure I would have picked up on these brutes!

Checking on http://www.railfaneurope.net/pix_frameset.html and selecting from the "Pictures" menu at left, scroll down to the third flag in "other pictures" - it's a green & white flag with DZ on it, gives you all the different Algerian diesels, one picture by Jean-Michel Barnabé looks identical to your top left view!

Yes, elsewhere on http://www.railfaneurope.net/list/algeria/algeria_sntf.html you'll find two similar classes of GM GT36HCW listed for SNFT (Algeria), the DR class for freight and DS for passenger.


Algeria is a country not well covered in the railway press (I can't even remember a recent article in Lok Report, the German magazine that best covers contemporary railways worldwide).
