Caption - Brazilian EFDCT Dona Teresa Cristina no.312 is an awesome metre-gauge Baldwin built 2-10-4 from 1947. These locos spent their lives hauling coal. With large grates and mechanical stokers they were free-steaming and made the heavy loads look easy work on the line from Tubarão to Imbituba. Typical of US design of the period they had all the usual clutter on the boiler including an ever-present bell. The loco is seen preparing to join a train at the main yard in Tubarão in 1978.
