Vietnam railroads in 1967 - an article in a brazilian magazine
Author: pedrop

Hi, while I was looking up on old railroad articles and news on ancient magazines and newspapers here in Brazil, I found this interesting article on the railroads in Vietnam in 1967. 
The article is in portuguese, but the photos are nice and interesting to  see.
The magazine is called O Cruzeiro, dated from November 18, 1967.
The article title is " A train called danger"

Including a steam-powered rack railway!  Really great.

TRAINS ran a 2-part article March/April 1969 using some of these same photos.  Jerry Pinkepank wrote the article and Paul Stephanus, the author of the Brazilian article, was credited with "Data" for the TRAINS article.  I thought the photos looked familiar.  The TRAINS article was longer and included a lot more technical detail.

Thanks for posting. The National Geographic had a very good similar story back in the 1960s including the Wickham Trolleys, one of which the author was riding when if wrecked. Those GE U6Bs are still running in Vietnam today.

Yes the  M-1 carbine.     That's the only gun I ever wished to fire.

We were issued M-2 carbines in 1962 with six 15-round mags in a pouch plus two 30-round banana mags taped together.
