Cast iron train O182 at Km 622 ( Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, yesterday (Sunday) was a bit cold and cloudy day here. I took the motorcycle and visited the ERE siding about six Km from home. For my surprise, the dirty road is receiving asphalt and now it will easier to watch the trains in that location, because the road was terrible and impossible to use in raining days. 
I watched two train there: MRS cast iron O182 and Vale empty ore M777.

1 ) The new asphalt arrived at Km 622 of VLI tracks. I found some MoW crew finishing the job with tie changing in that location;
2) A crossing level to a small church;
3) Asphalt and tracks.

Nice look at the ore train ending with containers. Very NICE you will have new asphalt on your road for better traveling on your motorcycle. Nice to see old water tank and station area.
