Note Canada never supplied locomotives to TAZARA only the Chinese and GE, USA and Henschel Co. Germany using GE, USA, engine and electrics. MLW Montreal, Canada supplied EAR&H/TRC locomotives with ALCO engines and Canadian GE electrics, which I worked on.

So above is either a GE locomotive or Henschel leading a Chinese trailing unit.
