Nice enjoyable series Pedro. Nice looking SD70ACes. Liked picture #19-23-24. Also liked the train speeding thru the forest with the head unit trying to look like a steam engine, lol.

Yes, this land is full of snakes, specially the ratlesnakes. Railfans must look carefully where to put the feet. In this video a yard man found a Sucuri that was cut by the train last week in another location far from here.

Great photos and videos!  But that's ALOT of locomotive to balance on narrow guage!  Why stay @ 3 meters when the larger guage is available???
