Empty ore on the Preto River Bridge (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

On January 28, I visited some locations along MRS Centro Line. In Afonso Arinos, I found an empty ore crossing the Preto river, that is one of the borders of Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais states. 

1) A dwarf signal at the end of Afonso Arinos siding, before the bridge;

2) The old station;

3) The tracks seen in the opposite direction from the bridge.

I noticed several signals on that track and the train appeared to moving 40 to 45 miles per hour. That was faster than most trains your past videos.   Lush country side is very photogenic.  Guess it is the rainey season since the river is muddy and flowing fast.  Thanks for posting.

Yes, from November to April use to rain a lot in that area. The empty ores use to run fast in Centro line. Right now, all traffic is close there since there were many mudslides in the Mar hill. At least a week to open the tracks again.
