Weird Cuban GMD-1
Cuba purchased a fleet of GMD-1s secondhand in the 1990s, but the 4-axle trucks were too much for the light rail in Cuba. An ingenious solution was found – replace one of them with a three-axle truck taken off the GMD-1s when they were converted to four-axle trucks!

These Cuban GMD-1s would make an interesting addition to your “oddball” collection. We all have them – stuff we don’t need but we buy anyway because they are neat. Well these wacky GMD-1s are neat!

DC Silent or DC/DCC/Sound
Accurate prime mover recordings – 567C or 654C depending on number
