Dual gauge train (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, a pic from group I follow in facebook. It shows two grain trains meeting somewhere in Rumo mainline. At left, we see a broad gauge Rumo train. At right, a narrow gauge VLI leaded by broad gauge GE AC44i's. Note how the cars are a bit to the right and a space occupied by the transition car called "madrinha". There is a video about this dual gauge trains in one of my old posts here in TO.
