This is a photo of a home-made electric locomotive built at the E.F. Central do Brasil maintenance works, using Metropolitan-Vickers spare parts. It was nicknamed Ferro de Engomar (Iron Pressing), due to its peculiar shape - by the way, clearly inspired in the GG electric locomotives of the Pennsylvannia Railroad. This photo was shot by Marcelo Lordeiro; a copy was kindly sent by Alberto Henrique del Bianco to the E.F. Brasil site.
