It looks like a damn fine specimen of an L class.  Not sure about the horn however.

DB so is the guts similar to the VR L?
  justapassenger Chief Commissioner

Probably not. None of the specifications are remotely close, and they were built by Breda rather than English Electric.

Even the superficial similarity drops off when you see a more side-on view of the Chilean loco.
