Estrada de Ferro Santos a Jundiaí

This railroad was the main link between São Paulo highlands and the Santos harbour for almost one century and played a vital role for the Brazilian coffee-based economy during the end of the XIX and the beginning of the XX century. From 1866 to 1946 it was an English company, the São Paulo Railway. The Brazilian Federal government took over the company that year and its name was changed to Estrada de Ferro Santos a Jundiaí. It was one of the railroads that formed the Rede Ferroviária Federal Sociedade Anônima - R.F.F.S.A. in 1957. Since 1997 it is part of a private-owned company, M.R.S. Logística, which now includes this railroad, the wide gauge network of the former E.F. Central do Brasil and the so-called Ferrovia do Aço (The Steel Railroad).
