Campo Grande, MS station (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, my friend Rony did a trip to Campo Grande, MS (Mato Grosso do Sul state, in the west part of the country) and took some pictures to us.
Campo Grande belonged to old Noroeste do Brasil railroad  - NoB. Later became part of RFFSA and ALL systems. The old station is without traffic since RFFSA did and cut off around the city a long time ago.
Some pics from Rony.
The station

Wonderful set of photos! The steam engine on a launch too the moon! Neat way to display an engine! Ralph Cramdon,(Jackie Gleason), some day Alice! Some day, that steam engine is going too-the moon! 
As an electrician, the electrical service to the crew house appears to be three phase? Is this common, and what voltage is provided? If you know , thank you to satisfy my curiosity!
Those ties by the station trackage switch will never support an engine if one should ever show up!
Thank you again for your photo essay!

"Ready for launch!"
This reminds me of when car dealers put automobiles on display at crazy angles.

Hi, Brazil uses two systems for residential use: 127V and 220V. Campo Grande uses 127V.
