The EMD DDM45 is a narrow gauge diesel-electric locomotive built by EMD. The DD in the name means that it has eight axles in two trucks, giving it a D-D wheel arrangement, while the M stands for the meter gauge track it was to operate on, and the 45 represents the EMD's SD45 that the engine was derived from. They were built for service on the Estrada de Ferro Vitória a Minas (EFVM) in Brazil, South America. In the early 1970s, the EFVM needed not only to expand its locomotive roster, but to use the most powerful single-engined locomotives available, and the SD45 represented the highest-rated model that EMD had to offer at the time.
