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 )

Interesting reason (I think) for that, if anyone cares---Pennsylvania trolleys that is---

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.
