Uncle Benny is still alive!
Yesterday I was lucky, in railfanning sense.
Going out from a shopping center, I saw, in the distance, a train standing between two level crossings waiting to enter the Patio Central.
Shooted myself there without regard to the car's dampers, I encountered a mixed freight headed by 1029, a C 30 M3 that 1) never I've seen before that unit and 2) it's rare that this class come down to Callao being mainly used on the higher part of the route.
Note that the loco stopped nearly some gentlemen that were burning waste to recuperate metals. the image is strange but I like it.
Having something to do, I left but, after nearly an hour, I came to the level crossing just after the tail of the train where I discovered that, at the back, there was 415.
The driver that escorted it told me that it's the last running Alco on FCCA and normally is used only for shunting services. In this case it was going to help 539 to shunt between the terminals because 801 is being overhauled.
The same man confirmed that 701, the JT26CW, has the two cabs on use.
Note that on the cab of 415 is sealed a pllate that shows a rebuilding by MLW in 2003. Is it normal?
And for now it's all.

Alcohol is an enemy. Man that escapes from the enemy is a coward!
