Steel train in FCY (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

On April 7th, I recorded some videos in Carandaí city showing the trains running in the normal direction due to an issue with a fill in the Ferrovia do Aço of MRS railroad. In general, the Centro Line is for Westbound empties only, but now we can see loaded Eastbound trains there too. MRS plans to return the normal traffic direction in one or two months, so the railfans are visiting Centro Line to watch trains in the opposite direction there.
I have posted videos of empty ore trains in FCY yard before. Here it is an Eastbound steel train passing by the yard in its way to Rio de Janeiro. 

1) Carandaí station seen from a road higher than the tracks;

2) An old building from former EFCB railroad surviving in the yard due to the vandalism of modern days;

3) Carandai station.

Nice series Pedro. Like the old station and other older buildings. Nice pose at Caranda and interesting train video, like the old searchlight signal.
