Railfaning in Rumo system - part 11 (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, here it is the last part of my railfaning trip in Rumo mainline on September 10 to 11, 2022. Now we see loaded grain I36 passing through the yard. It was almost noon and time to return to home. We had a 600 km long trip ahead. So, after this train we got the stuff in the hotel and took the road. We did it in eight hours. It was a tired trip, but it was great to attend the meeting in ZSK. I hope to attend more meetings like this in the near future. I lost two meeting like this that happened in MRS area in October and November. 

1 - 2) A couple of AC44i leads the heavy 120 grain cars train through ZSK yard;

3) Another AC44i working as the first DPU.

4) An AC44i with former ALL livery pushing the train in the end is the second DPU. Note the big grade of the tracks;

5) Friends Carlos (right) and Dirceu are well known model raolroaders here and attended the model railroad meeting with us. We traveled in the same car;

6) While on the road, we passed by Batatais city where we saw this beautiful church. Batatais means potato plantation.

7- 9) Old CMEF station in Batatais. The name of the town means potatoe plantation, and that's one reason of old Mogiana rwy served that area. The other reason was the coffee plantations in the towns nearby.
