In 2000 the Anna Costa station and its switchyards were sold; all tracks were pulled out and a big supermarket and a convention center were built there, as this photo shows. The passenger station building was preserved; it is the yellow building at the center of the photo. Right behind it there is a freight train passing by. Photo shot by Antonio Augusto Gorni from the 10th floor of the Hospital Anna Costa in March 27, 2005. By the way, in the good days of Anna Costa station this would be a very good place to recover a sick railfan!
