A friend sent me this photo from a trip she took to Argentina. I'm pretty sure that the loci is an EMD product, but I'm having trouble identifying it. Any help?

Fan of late and early Conrail... also transition-era PRR, 70s Santa Fe, BN and SP, 70s-80s eastern CN, pre-merger-era UP, heavy electric operations in general, dieselized narrow gauge, modern EFVM and Brazilian railroads in general, transition-era DB and DR... why bother trying to list them all?

Hi CN7059
 
Is a EMD model G22-CW of  1650-1500 HP. This motor operates a public tour railroad named Tren Patagonico. The special feature of this unit is that belongs to a batch of 18 motors built in Argentina by Astarsa​​, licensed from EMD, between 1977 and 1978.
