Looks like a GE 44 ton on wide (1676 mm) track. The third rail under it is probably gauged to 4' 8 1/2". Note how the sideframes are almost flush with the outside edges of the chassis:

The standard gauge in Brazil is 1600mm ( 5' 3", same as the erstwhile Pennsylvanian Trolleys )

Looks like an 80 tonner since it has steps like a switcher inserted into the frame. Other than the trucks being gauged for 5'3" it looks like the ex-Army 80 tonners that are out and about since the US Army disposed of them 15 yrs ago or more. The inside rail may be gauged to meter gauge also.

Are that and other locomotives from the port at railpictures.net. Is listed as 65 tonner there.
In some photos the 3rd rail looks more meter gauge than 4ft8.5 compared to 5ft3.
