CEFU ANP 3 in Uruguay

ANP 3 has been a regular and reliable performer since news from Uruguay started appearing on this site. Marcelo Benoit has sent me this picture (3rd August 2007) of it being retubed at Penarol:

Marcelo Benoit reports that 2005's Heritage days were celebrated on September 24th and 25th (added 22nd October 2005). AUAR ANP 1 ran between Montevideo shelter and Lorenzo Carnelli; B 17 was exhibited with an official car (all donated to AUAR) in Montevideo Shelter; CEFU ANP 3 with passenger car was running at Montevideo Port; steam crane exhibited by ANP on Montevideo Port dockside; V158 and S144 exhibited at Peņarol Workshop, opened for the first time by AFE to the public; hall of Montevideo Central Station was reopened with an exhibition of pictures of the railway activity.
