A Railfan in Brazil
Hi, today we had a big flood in São Paulo, Brazil. The railroad tracks also were covered by the water.
The pics enclosed are print from the tv news here. We see a MRS train and a CPTM Alco RS3 in a flooded yard .

Whoa. Won't water that deep short out the traction motors? I guess steam locomotives have the advantaqe in a flood. Love the photo of old RS3. I hope you can get some better photos of it when the waters recede. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
