A G.E. V8 electric locomotive, with the first FEPASA livery. We can see two signs of decadence. First: this locomotive, originally designed for passenger service, was pulling a freight train. Second: the FEPASA livery itself. The chromium-plated fillets were replaced by a white-painted strip and the famous C.P. inscription, also in chromium-plated steel, was replaced by the white-painted fepasa acronym, in lower case letters. Compare it with the original Companhia Paulista livery. This photo probably was taken in the early/middle seventies. Copy courtesy of Ricardo Frontera, from Bauru, SP.
