Are those the Budd cars I photographed in 1987 in and around Rio, they were on the overnight train from Sao Paulo?

Yes, these budd are part of the trains that linked Belo Horizonte to Rio and Rio to São Paulo. If you post your pictures here in TO we can identify the cars. Many of them were scrapped years ago.

Thank you for posting. It is always good to get perspectives on Christmas from other countries.

That's a great photo. The train name was Santa Cruz and used to be pulled by broad gauge U20C. The one that departured Belo Horizonte to Rio and vice-versa was called Vera Cruz and used to be pulled by Alco RSD12. Santa Cruz and Vera cruz were the names of the land later called Brazil in the 1500's.
