The heaviest locomotive found in the decauville railways of the banana plantations of the south São Paulo state seashore. It is a Henschel number 1653, manufactured in 1938. This photo was shot in Fazenda São Francisco em 1994; apparently this loco was bought second hand by this farm. Photo shot and kindly sent by Nílson Rodrigues, from Caçador SC.
