The trip is a mixture of natural and cultural beauties of the fifth largest country in the world, combined with train rides, which will stirr the blood of every railway friend. The trip takes you from the port city of Vitoria into the region of the gold rush to Ouro Preto, to the metropolis of Rio de Janeiro.
Brazil has a railway network of almost 30.000 km in length, which is still being expanded today. After the franchising and partitioning of the state railway company RFFSA during the 90's, the private train operators have shown a strong commitment to the new task. Investment and modernization programs are under way. The passenger traffic on rails in Brazil is limited only to a few "islands". A few large cities know a more or less intense suburban transport-ranging from a 3 compartment train and a diesel locomotive in the veterans age to city train networks with modern electronic technology. In addition there are tourist train operations which run on beautiful and scenic route sections. For this purpose often steam locomotives are used, which are called " Maria Fumaça" (smoking Maria) in Brazil, who knows why…
