EFPP Blog is like a Mini Vacation to Brazil

I found a blog link that has some great 60 cm narrow gauge preservation photos from a limestone carrying railway which began operations in 1914 the same year as the NWP.  The photos shown three locomotives being moved to the original mainline of the Estrada de Ferro(Railway)Perus-Pirapora or EFPP in January.  The text is written in Brazilian but some of the words are similar to english and it was fun to decode what was going on in the photos.  So mix up a tropical drink, turn up the heat, slip on some beach togs,start up some rhumba music and check it out at: http://peruspirapora.blogspot.com.

Bon Voyage

The website I have is http://peruspirapora.blogspot.com.  If you look to the right of the page at Arquio do blog and scroll down to Janeiro(3) you will see some great photos of the rescue of three locomotives.PS-I knew it was Portugese(but I couldn't spell it)

Paul, the website above isn't in blue text, and so isn't a link. Also, Brazilians speak Portugese (for the most part).
