Man, Indian railroading is incredible.

It's something that most folks in the US don't really know much about, myself included, but the more I learn, the more I say "wow".

Check out the Wiki page for the WDM3A.  Home grown locos but with Alco V16 251-C's.  Apparently built from 94 right to 2015.

Can someone tell me which US Alco's they resemble?

These were based on the DL560C, which was designed as an export model. In terms of the prime mover, these most resemble the C628 and C425, but have higher horsepower.
Modeling the Erie Lackawanna and Delaware & Hudson in 1975, and Conrail and the Delaware & Hudson in 1981.

I want an N Scale GE U33/34/36C!
