PA version in Brazil.<br>6) Lend-lease steam switcher in Britain.<br>7) Czech and Russian diesels patterned from 1940's lend-lease Alco road switchers.<br>8) "Texas Zephyr" cars in Saudia Arabia.<br>9) Shays in Taiwan.<br>10) EMC motorcars in Australia.<br>11) Double-ended EMD-licensed F-units in Norway, Belgium, Denmark, and Hungary.<br>12) RDC's in Jamaica, Australia, & Brazil.<p>Not to mention American steam in Cuba, Central & South America, Turkey, etc. and big electrics in Chile and Brazil.<p><br>
