"ABPF in Campinas, Sept 2003" Campinas Travelogue by glabah
Campinas Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 66 photos
The day we rode the train, there were was also a school group that had chartered a train trip. They rode behind this green Pacific type wood burning steam locomotive.
The locomotive collection at the station included several more steam locomotives, including these two.
Line-side grass, as seen in the previous travelogue for this location, had been burned back, allowing for a better view of all the line-side attractions. It also allowed for better photography of the trains themselves.
The line has several intermediate stations, including Pedro Americo. Many of the stations are beautifully restored, but a few are in decaying condition. Those stations, however, are not owned by the ABPF railway preservation group.
Loading the wood in our locomotive, from a closer view than the year before.
Some of the locomotives at the Campinas branch of the ABPF are in absolutely beautiful condition, but some of them are not. It all depends on what the ABPF group has been able to accomplish with its volunteer labor.
A neat bridge crosses a stream near the end of the line.
