Brazilian TV video on the new CPTM trains. Some 36 new trains will be bought for line 8 (West side) at the cost of US$ 1 billion.

http://g1.globo.com/Noticias/SaoPaul...3-5605,00.html

In the last few years 10 billion USD have been spent on the city's rail system.

And now a blast from the past, a great video showing the old Cobrasma Francorail series 5000 trains which today serve CPTM line 8 in the West Side.



I sugest watching it on youtube to view it widescreen in HD! Apparently this same model still operates in the Paris Metro. In Sao Paulo they appeared between 1978 and 1981. They are the longest compositions in the city's metro today, with 12 cars.

Tour of CPTM shops!!! - Pure GOLD!!

Absolutely pure GOLD!!! Great, great photos. Was that an open house tour offered by CPTM to the public in general?? Or was that a private tour??? Are there any future tours planned?? Would very much like to be placed on the email list for any future dates.

Please keep me in mind.......

Muito obrigado.

Hhehe I know very little of the nature of those tours, you see, in the ranking of most rail-crazed forumers, I rank around 76th.

You have to hang around the Brazilian Rail Infrastructure Forum

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1880

Every now and then one of the forumers (especially Tiago Costa) organizes such visits to both CPTM and Metro, you have to participate in the specific thread of the visit and say you want to attend. Those are arranged private visits probably granted to SSC fanatics two or three times a year. Since there are many left out, there might be an other one in a few months.
