Photographer's Note

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.
