Great machines in a dead line (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, this week I received a sab news: maybe a group of old diesel locomotives separated for preservation since a long time will be scrapped soon. The reason is that they were moved from an old railroad shop area in 2016 that was chosen to receive a new olimpic stadium for the Olimpic games in Rio de Janeiro at that time. They were sent to a closed central station near downtown Rio, and now the area was chose to receive a new building for the Justice. So, those great machines can meet the torch if the preservation group can not find a new place to them. It is really sad. In the group we have the last units of famous locomotive types, such as the FA1 and AS616. What a sad world we live where people do not care for history anymore!

What a shame. The crane is great! If I could get it to CA, I would. Isn't there any rail group that would take some of it?

Yes, we have a group but they do not have money to move all the stuff to another location. They are trying to convince the governmet to help them, but at this time of a big economic crisis it is almost impossible.

Amen to people not caring about history. Todays youth are more interested with whats on you tube or twitter or some other dumb ass web site. They dont realize what or forefathers did to get them where they are now. World is going down the crapper every day.
