This is an ad about the luxury train Cacique (chieftain) between Rio de Janeiro-Campos-Cachoeiro do Itapemirim that was run by E.F. Leopoldina during the sixties and seventies. This ad was regularly published at Revista Ferroviária during the early sixties. This train was composed of carbon steel cars, a must in that railroad, including a restaurant... But, as far as I remember from Guia Levi info, published during the mid-seventies, its speed was not so luxurious: an average of about 40 km/h (25 miles/hour...).
