Apart from the 3 mentioned in the caption above, 5 locomotives of this type were also supplied to the FC Entre Rios in 1927 with all passing to the FC General Urquiza in 1948.
At one time the public railways of Argentina utilised five different gauges; 60cm, 75cm. 1m, standard (1435mm), and 1676mm, although the closure of the Correntino system in 1969 has eliminated one of these.
