Caption - Usinas Das Maravilhas near Goiana in Brazil had a small 750mm gauge railway system for bringing sugar cane from the fields to the mill. In October 1978 three locos were in steam including this very handsome and rare wood-burning 0-4-2T no.5 "Pirajuhy" which was built by Alexander Penney in 1896 (works number 1006). This was the only loco from this manufacturer that I ever saw during my extensive travels. The other locos working at the mill were an Orenstein & Koppel 0-4-2T and an 0-8-0T from the same manufacturer.
