When large ships go through the Panama Canal, they are pulled in and out of the locks by these locomotives, locally called "mules". Mules on both sides of the ship keep it centered in the channel, which is important, because some ships (our cruise ship, for example) have less that one meter of space on either side of the channel.

actually there is an excellent harmony throughout the scene.

I saw in your gallery nice collection of many pictures from Panama Canal.
I like this one with good diagonal composition of row of "mules". The quality is good with nice colors, light, sharpness and interesting note.
Have a nice weekend,
