Estrada de Ferro Carajás

This railroad, located in the Pará state, north of Brazil, was originally built to serve the iron and bauxite mines of the Companhia Vale do Rio Doce, at Carajás. Together with the Estrada de Ferro Vitória-Minas, also controlled by same company, they are the busiest railroads in Brazil. Well, after all, they have the same mission: massive iron ore transportation. They are rare examples of efficiency in the Brazilian railroad transportation system.
