Photo of a special train transporting rails which would be used in the revamping of some lines of E.F. Leopoldina. This is a very rare picture, as it shows an Esslingen diesel-hydraulic locomotive in action. They had a short career in Leopoldina due to maintenance problems and were later transfered to Viação Férrea do Rio Grande do Sul. This photo was originally published in a 1959 issue of Revista Ferroviária and kindly sent to these pages by Christoffer.
