But there are still some Budd-Mafersa stainless steel cars preserved. This photo shows a special passenger train stopped at the São José do Rio Preto station. This train, that run between São José do Rio Preto and Eng° Schmidt, only in September 21 and 22, 2002, during the springtime commemorations in São José do Rio Preto, was composed of a Baggage car, three First Class cars and a Restaurant car; it was pulled by a G.E. Dash-9 diesel-electric locomotive. All those cars and the loco belong to Brasil Ferrovias. This photo and information was kindly sent by Paulo Sotelo Calvo, from São José do Rio Preto SP.
