This is the Anhumas Station in Campinas City, São Paulo State, Brazil. "Maria Fumaça" (Steam Train) came from the end of century XIX and it is still functioning thanks for the restoration and maintenance works by Brazilian Railroad Preservation Association, "ABPF". Rail tracks, stations and locomotives had been brought from England since 1958. The coffee production was the great responsible for the maintenance of the railroads. Due to the coffee's decline, the railroads had been slowly abandoned and road transportation, with better cost/benefit rate, has initiated its era.

Trilhos, estações, locomotivas, foram trazidos da Inglaterra a partir de 1958. A época do café foi a grande responsável pela manutenção das ferrovias. Com o declinio do café, as ferrovias foram aos poucos sendo abandonadas e o tranporte rodoviário, com uma melhor relação custo/benefício, iniciou a sua era.
