A photo of an English Simplex locomotive at the Decauville railroad system of the Jatobatuba farm, between Itanhaém and Peruíbe (SP). The locomotive is crossing a rustic bridge made with wood logs. The bananas are transported from the plantation to the administrative center of the farm. In the past they were transfered to a E.F. Sorocabana train in route to São Paulo city. Nowadays, they are transported by truck. Photo shot by Nílson Rodrigues in 1991.
