A passenger luxury train of E.F. Leopoldina - may be the Cacique! - arriving in Rio de Janeiro. This was the default scenario for rail photos of E.F. Leopoldina and E.F. Central do Brasil in Rio de Janeiro - a bird's view from the train, with the Maracanã, the biggest soccer stadium all over the world, at the background. This photo still shows the original E.F. Leopoldina livery for the diesel-electric locomotives and carbon steel cars bought in the late 1950s. This photo, originally published at the Revista REFESA (the house organ of the Rede Ferroviária Federal S.A. - R.F.F.S.A., the state-owned Brazilian railroad network), was kindly sent by Alberto Henrique del Bianco, from São Paulo SP.
