A view from the Gilda sleeper car as the night train from São Paulo to Panorama approached the new Garça station during some morning in 1989. One can see, in the background, coffee plantations and a Brazilian railroad killer, the highway between Bauru and Panorama. After all, as the song says,

Well if you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway, that's the best
Get your kicks on
Route 66

Prophetic words, specially in Brazil!... This photo was kindly sent to the E.F. Brasil site by Elly Roberto de Oliveira Jr., from Cuiabá MT, who shot it during a trip between Campinas and Garça. The lyrics were taken from the song Route 66, by Robert Troup. You are hearing a MIDI file with the version of this music arranged by the rock group Depeche Mode....
