The locomotives i appreciate are the dutch class 1200.
They where designed by Baldwin and build by werkspoor.
Some parts (the bogies, and the electrical installation) were made in the United States as part of the Marshall Plan.
The locomotives were build around 1951-1953.
On 12 november there was a 60 year anniversary and the remaining 8 of the 25 locomotives had a little reunion.
Some of them where brought back in there original livery
The first 3 on the picture are still in service by EETC !

Would you look at all those axles!

Although merely a few seconds' worth, I think I've stumbled on some footage of the Centipedes, wherein the narrator calls them BH 50s (not BP 60s) :

TV ad from locomotive builder General Electric



Plant is located just outside of Erie, Pennsylvania, USA; train video shot on BNSF mainline on north shore of Columbia River in Washington state (across river from Oregon), USA.

Enjoy!
