Remarks & Notes 
In 1953 the comapny CP(Companhia Paulista de Estradas de Ferro) purchased 3 units of this locomotive(contrary to what many think, that locomotives came new to Brazil and never runned in the USA) the units were ordered to pull passenger trains in the unelectrified tracks of the company, the unit 600 was scrapped in the time of nationalization of the CP, the 601 ended operation and was renumbered 600 and was for years conserved aesthetically in the front of the maintenance shed that belonged to CP and passed into the possession of the statal company of the state of São Palo FEPASA(Ferrovia Paulista Sociedade Anônima) in 1971 and the 602 had his body scrapped and the cab became an adornment of a roadside restaurant that never opened,already tried to restore it but the restauration stoped and the locomotive keep with the base yellow ink, the original color of the locomotives was blue with white stripe: http://api.ning.com/files/9omC6pKO1K3WrmkkfkixuyASceU*xRjXoy9hNXegrDidkyPsgxnccM3EU-M3u2uwDhT4RrVox82YjMdQ9rZ1U8ru9MqzTTTS/alco_pa2_jundiai_0671.jpg (the photo is not by me), note that the area of coupling is different then the north american locomotives, this is because in the year they were manufactured the CP still wore English style couplings.
