It's rainning cats and dogs around here (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, the Summer arrived in Brazil and the storms too. Many cities in Bahia and Minas Gerais states are flooded. VLI railroad is suffering with many track closing due to floods and rock slides. Pictures received from friends in VLI.

1 - 3) Rock slides at Urandi hill, close to the border of BA and MG states.

Looks like a lot of bull dozier work is needed on some of those cuts.

15) Another one from Urandi hill. These narrow gauge tracks were built in the 1920's by old Leste Brasileiro (VFFLB) to link the northeast rail network with the old Central of Brazil (EFCB) in the southeast network.

Several sticks of dynamite would be very helpful.

I think if they put dynamite there the whole hill will come down to the tracks.
