Narrow and broad gauge action (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, yesterday I visited the yard two times to watch some action. I could find Vale narrow gauge empty ore train C669 and MRS broad gauge trains 0772 (cement in bags from Holcin Cement Co.) and O782 (cast iron) at EVP.  Enjoy.

Nice video and photos.  How much MRS and Vale braad guage traffic do you get vs narrow guage?

Hi, MRS comes here every day to get or bring diverse cargos like coal, cast iron, zinc, containers, cement, steel, big tires for mining equipments and others. It uses to run four trains a day here. Sometimes we have five or six. MRS is working in new loading areas here to encrease the number of trains. This area belongs to VLI and MRS and Vale must deal with VLI to allow more  VLI trains in their area too if they intends to encrease their trains here.
VLI and Vale uses to run up to twenty five trains in 24 hours here. A bit ahead from here, where VLI and Vale have a junction, the number of trains is much bigger, specially in the grain harvest (that it will start this month).

14 - 15) Two views of Eldorado  yard (EEL) near Belo Horizonte.
16) Capitão Eduardo yard (ECE) in the same tracks that serves my area.

Those are the most heavily used yards you have posted pictures for.

Yes, EEL and ECE yards are heavily used. There is Barreiro yard (FBO) that is broad gauge only. All MRS trains coming yo my area starts st FBO. Also, this yard is used by MRS yo sent cars and locomotives to Horto Florestal shops (EHF).
17 -19) Pics of FBO.
