Perurail 552 552 and 482 of PeruRail at Mollendo earlier in 2002. You will note that all locomotives on the railway now sport ditch lights and nathan K3a air horns .. and as they cycle thru the shops in Arequipa, are receiving extra numbering at the front and rear for train identification purposes ...

You will note that the ditch lights and new headlights make a big difference !! It was the height of the rainy season.
