The PS01 passenger train, from São Paulo to Presidente Epitácio, is making a stop in Sorocaba station during the last days of passenger trains and electric locomotion in FEPASA. Note that the 2000 Series electric loco showed the third (and last) FEPASA livery - it is somewhat surprising to see that this loco was re-painted, as electric locomotives were to be scrapped since 1995. Photo shot by Nick Lawford, from England, in May 2, 1997. He says: The regular locomotives used late 1996 and through 1997 on PS01 and PS02 seemed to be 2017, 2019, and 2021 : the line could be seen from my office near to Domingo de Moraes station on the suburban line from São Paulo (Júlio Prestes). 2019, 2021, and 2025 carried silver grey livery. 2025 seemed to be a more unusual locomotive to find on the passenger duty. Other locomotives of this class which were usually seen on constant duties were 2013+2010+2020 and 2015+2016+2002 which seemed to always work as such on freight, and 2003, 2006, 2012 and 2022 which appeared to be used from Mairinque depot only on local duties, usually in twos, assisting between Sorocaba, Mayrink and Presidente Altino yard.
