Empty logging doing the sharp S curve (Brazil).
Author: pedrop

Hi, yesterday I was in Pedro Leopoldo town just 11 km from here and could see the empty logging train C575 doing the sharp S curve there while climbing the grade to Wilson Lobato yard (EWL).

1 - 3) Views of the town and tracks in the S curve.

4 - 6) The beautifull station built in 1896 by former Central of Brazil railway (EFCB).

It just amazes me what Brazil does with a meter gauge.

Very NICE look at the S curve with the train rolling thru . Enjoyable look at the old train Depot with your name in it.

Always enjoy your excellent images and locations. What runs on the standard gauge and how is the weather?

Hi, we do not have standard gauge in Brazil, but broad guage (1,600mm). Those tracks belongs to MRS railroad that moves cast iron, coal, containers, steel, cement, slag, zinc, among other cargos here.
The only freight standard gauge in Brazil was an industrial railroad in North that is closed nowadays. There are plans to open it again.
The weather here is nice. Our Winter uses to be dry and sunny and sometimes it is hotter than the Summer.
