Greece, MX627 rebuilds underway

Post by pwormald »

The Greek MLW MX627's are now undergoing their full rebuild programs. Around 5 out of 20 locos have been completed. Note the locos are now getting GE turbos. Output remains at 2700 hp. Recent photos in the OSE shops in Pireaus are here.

The eight remaining MX636 have all had their rebuild finished, they are now in regular use. Just look for the Greek visit photos on this page. The MX636 are the A-501 class.
