The Krauss-Maffei ML 4000 is a diesel-hydraulic locomotive, built between 1960 and 1969 by German manufacturer Krauss-Maffei in Germany. It generated 4000 horsepower from two Maybach V16 engines. Thirty-seven examples were built for two North American railroads and one South American railroad. Also, the brazilian Estrada de Ferro Vitória a Minas ordered 16 meter gauge units between 1966 and 1969. They were the most powerful locomotives for use in metric gauge at that time. Although they had problems with traction (they would sometimes slip on the rails, practically burning them), they stayed in service until the 1980s with the arrival of the EMD DDM45.
