It looks like a mix of a BR 218 and a BR 219. Interesting sound - very raspy.

BR 218 and 219 have hydraulic power transmission and fast running engines.
This locomotive has electric transmission and a slowly running prime mover.

It doesn't look like BR218 or BR219 to me.
But it looks like CFLs 1806 which was running in Denmark for a year. 1806 is compatible with the Nohab/GM-EMD MX and MY classes, using EMD cable. Also the 1806 is a GM-EMD engine.Image

CFL doesn't have own locomotive types. They order locomotive types which already work in neighboring countries. So I guess, CFL's 1800 series is the same as series 55 of SNCB/NMBS.

Modernized AFB/GM AA16 (NOHAB delivered only to Denmark, Norway and Hungary) look relatively similar. But they have clearly smaller "portholes" as you can see in the last image where CFL's 1806 is en route with a NOHAB/GM AA12 (DSB class MX) and a NOHAB/GM AA16 (DSB class MY). Last of which was the prototype for AFB/GM AA16.

I don't know if they where remotorized, but the original prime mover was General Motors' 16-567C—the same as in most NOHAB/GM AA16, all AFB/GM AA16 and in EMD's F9, FP9 and FL9. So the sound actually should be familiar to you.

By the way:
I have looked it up. CFL's series 1800 (20 units) are really the same as Belgian series 55 (42 units). And it's the successor of GM/AFB AA16 (so called NOHAB).
