This locomotive, a very rare one produced by the SACM and equiped with an MGO V12 diesel engine also coming from the SACM will need a lot of restauration work. The replacement of its original engine has already been realized. It is the NA version of the turbocharged engine of the well known BB63500.

But the young offenders operating in the area where the locomotive was parked have caused considerable damages in it for so  little money. The quantity of work is very important here.
