"Preserved Brazilian Steam Railway at ABPF" Top 5 Page for this destination Campinas Things to Do Tip by glabah

Campinas Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos

Campinas is the home of a preserved railway line. The line operates between Campinas (near the Carrefour shipping center) and Jaguariúna, a city about 10 km north of Campinas.

I have divided my photos here into the 2001 visit and the 2003 visit.

The official web site of this operation used to be at http://www.eina.com.br/mariafumaca/
but today it is located at the web site below.

As it has been quite a long time since I visited this wonderful little railroad, and even in 2003 things had changed quite a bit since my visit in 2001. Therefore, I am not going to trust that any information I have is still valid.

One can take the train to a number of different stations along the line, so that the ticket price covers a fairly broad range.
