DPU on the bridge (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, here it is a picture taken on November 4, 2016 while I was railfaning with a CSX engineer on the MRS "Ferrovia do Aço" (Steel Railroad). We see the DPU crossing iconic bridge over BR-267 road where we see the name of the Line built in the 1980´s for loaded trains only. The leading units are crossing Bom Jardim yard and are almost entering the 8,640 meters long tunnel ahead on way to Rio de Janeiro.

For those who likes to see the maps, here it is the location by Google Viaduct over BR-267

That´s all for today

That's a cool picture Pedro of the DPU over the good looking bridge.

BTW, there was an issue with a fill on Ferrovia do Aco yesterday and all MRS trains are running through Centro Line. The company sent a warning note to the social medias to people watch out to trains in both direction on Centro Line. It's a nice chance to watch the heavy ore trains going down Mantiqueira hill.
