Remarks & Notes 
Two variants of the Russian TEM 3 Road Switcher rest at the Havana engine terminal. The highly successful TEM models trace their linage to Alco RSD-1s supplied to the Soviets during World War 2. The nearer of the TEM 3 variants retains clear Alco traits including an arched cab roof, recessed circular headlight, and the characteristic single dorsal fan housing. In a case of genetic drift of sorts the latter TEM 3 variant has lost these holdover features.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
