I can't believe that the train would actually run without all the doors being closed.

The video was maded in 2014/09/19, with the doors opened.

Looking for news (images, if you dont read portuguese) from the "o globo" (must popular newspaper of Rio de Janeiro), "supervia" (train company) and "saracuruna" (rail line)

Those oldere trains can still do that. Running with open doors and people hanging out was the routine in the system in the 80s and 90s. With the upgrades in the system after 2000, that has become fortunately a rare sight, but can still occur in case of system breakdowns, when some lines overcrowd.

That will vanish definitely one or two years from now, when the older trains are finally phased out.

In Sao Paulo this kind of situation, which was also common in the 80s and 90s, was eliminated before 2002. The Sao Paulo suburban system (CPTM) transports over 2.5 million passengers/day, Rio's Supervia system transports a meager 600 pax/day, they still have a long way to go.

And in Sao Paulo the CPTM system has free transfer to the Metro system, in Rio the two systems charge separately, a major disadvantages.

OK but do not put the verb before its subject in English, and don't mark the adjective for plural, and put the verb in the past tense if that's what you want, and use the right verb, since "stay" in English cannot render the meaning you intend, "remain" is better. "Stay" can only mean "not move", "ficar parado".

The proper way to say "Ficou o problema com os novos trens" would be "The problem remained with the new trains" or better yet "The problem wasn't solved by the new trains" (o problema não foi resolvido pelos novos trens").

Back to the point, in any case the problem of trains running with open doors was significantly reduced after 2000-2005, now being an unusual event, as far as I know (I have never lived in Rio and only used the suburban service once, in 2002).

Here is a video I shot of the Corcovado Rack Railway, or Trem do Corcovado.

I took the time-lapse shot with my I-Phone and it got so overheated in the sun next to the front window that it shut down for 10 minutes after I got the shot! It was so hot, it could burn your hand!

Fantastic, the natural landscape is amazing! But is this track in the urban area of Rio? It could be pass into a park or a natural reserve, or not?

you can see this rail line at this GoogleMaps link
https://goo.gl/maps/VhHlf

zoom out to locate yourself in Rio de Janeiro


this rail line climbs the Corcovado Mountain (where the Christ Redeemer statue is located).

the forest is the Tijuca Forest, maybe the largest urban forest in the world

Quote:
The Tijuca Forest (Floresta da Tijuca in Portuguese) is a mountainous hand-planted rainforest in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is claimed to be the world's largest urban forest, covering some 32 km² (12.4 mi²), although there are sources assigning this title to the urban forest of Johannesburg, South Africa, where between 6 and 9.5 million trees were planted.[1]

The Tijuca Forest is a man-made reclamation of land around Rio de Janeiro that had previously been cleared and developed to grow sugar and coffee. Replanting was carried out by Major Manuel Gomes Archer in the second half of the 19th century in a successful effort to protect Rio's water supply. This followed concerns made by the Brazilian King Dom Pedro II in 1861 about erosion and deforestation caused by intensive farming, as declining levels of rainfall had already begun impacting on the supply of drinking water

Oh, Im sorry for my hasty post. I didn't notice that this was the Rio Commuter Rail forum. Yes, this inclined railroad is very close to downtown Rio de Janeiro.

Thank you very much for the answer! I hope to enjoy this rail in the future... It could be considered a turist attraction

New Rio de Janeiro commuter trains commissioned
15 DEC, 2014



Rio de Janeiro’s commuter rail operator SuperVia has commissioned its 50th new Chinese-built train.

Two more CNR 3000 Series trains entered passenger service on December 4.

Twenty new four-car units have entered service this year. Half of the 100 trains being built by the Chinese manufacturer are now in operation.

The final new 3000 Series train is expected to be commissioned in 2016
