Brazilian Gem

In Brazil's Minas Gerais (General Mines) province, a tiny 2ft 6in gauge railway still carries tourists. Once part of a 400km system, only 13km now remain, but the 1890s Baldwin locomotives and rolling stock are still in use, a living museum of 1890s North American narrow gauge practice. The line links a historic town with a picturesque village, through lush countryside and rolling hills.

Ten minutes of bonus footage show tourist operations on the Trem da Vale, a metre gauge line between nearby Ouro Preto and Mariana.

It uses an ex-Argentine 2-10-2 from the famous Transandine railway between Salta (Argentina) and Socompa (Chile).
