Remarks & Notes 
SNIM uses EMD GPL15's as switching locmotives at its port in Cansado (near Nouadhibou). The "L" stands for "Light", as it weighs slightly less than a regular GP15. Those boxes behind the cab are special air filters used to deal with the blowing sand in the Sahara.

Things that were once Canadianized.

Now that so many American and South American railways are buying old Canadian locos with the bell above the windshield and details like that, that old fashion is disappearing too fast, and not to mention eco rebuild programs.
