3) The raid starts using a 4x4 in a dirt road through the forest and up hill on a big grade.

4) Then you reach the tracks at Engenheiro Lange station where we leave the car and starts the tracking.

5) The station is under restoration. Tbe first train of the day is leaded by an GE ES43BBi 666....not a good road number. for sure...

13 - 14) The narrow way through the forest takes you to the beautiful Marumbi station and its yard, where we can see old crew houses and also the main office of Marumbi natural park.
