Estrada de Ferro Perus-Pirapora

This was a small railroad that served the "Fábrica de Cimento Perus" (Perus Cement Factory) in Perus, a small village in the north of São Paulo city, served by the Estrada de Ferro Santos a Jundiaí. It linked the factory with its limestone quarries and was about 35 kilometers long, using a very narrow gauge (60 cm). The operation in that railroad ended in 1983, when the cement factory went bankrupt, but most part of its rolling stock still can be preserved. The Indústrias Reunidas Frateschi issued a 1999 calendar with photos of this railroad.
