ALCo and MLW preservation in Argentina

Pedro Pablo Lacoste tells: These FPD7 are in the Complejo Industrial Ferroviario Pérez of Rosario's town in the county of Santa Fe. The unit 8404 still possesses the rivets in its chassis. With the privatization of the Argentinan railways they were not given to any concessionaire. The government has it engaged to a club of rail fans that committed to reconstruct it. But the future of these two locomotives is still uncertain, it's a pain because they are in good state. The pictures were taken March 4th 1998.
