Empty coal speeding to ECA (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, today morning I met empty coal O782 speeding at Km 623 bound to ECA siding. It had 81 HAT class hoppers. Nice train.

Nice catch of the empty coal train rolling along smartly Pedro. Sounded like a friendly hogger with his toots!

That brings up a interesting subject.  What are hoggers (engineers)  called  in  Brazil ?

Nice video, how much more do the hoppers with the extensions carry?

Hi,  yes each company has its EOT type. Only Rumo uses the Fred type common found in US, but they are placed in the penult car. Vale and VLI use a very small EOT that is diffcult to see.
