Vietnam War & Locomotives Series nº 1 - by Carlos Briz


(Class GP-20 locomotive - U.S. Army Transportation Corps)

Did you really think the guys in Vietnam had no use for some good old locomotives?
Did you really think all they need was a few Huey choppers for transport?
Well, think again, since Carlos is about to prove you wrong!

As you can see, there was some heavy duty stuff that needed to be moved around Vietnam.
There were hundreds of M48 (Patton) tanks deployed in this operational theater, not to mention the thousands of armoured cavalry assault vehicles (ACAV's) used by the U.S. Army as it's primary work horse.

  1. Sorry. As far as I know the US Army never used GP20's in Vietnam. The nearest I know of are meter gauge GE U8b's delivered to Vietnam Railways in the South from 1963 onwards. GP20's are far too big for the VN loading gauge. Nice try, but it never happened.

    Ozguy.

  3. It's genuinely very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I just use internet for that purpose, and obtain the latest news.
