I opened this thread to show some pictures taken at Cristiano Otoni, MG, route of empties coming to the ore mines.
Pics 1 and 2 show AC44i 3408 leading an empty ore at Jambreiro tunnel.

Jambreiro tunnel has about 150 meters long. The pics were taken with Nikon D7000 and a 28-300mm lens.

Hello Pedro,

The photos are excellent. Is this line the standard guage of 4' 8.5 inches or narrow gauge?
