Baldwin Lima-Hamilton AS-616 road switcher

Seen in SP's black widow livery; this was one of 8 originally delivered to SP's subsidiary Texas and New Orleans Railroad.

The AS-616 was a Co-Co with a 1,600 hp prime mover, built between 1950 and 1954. Nineteen railroads bought 214 of them (66 to South America); two railroads bought seven cabless B units.
