Vitoria Minas Parte 3

In this video you can enjoy the cab ride - train driver's view on the Vitória-Minas Railway, the third part of the journey (out of four) between Governador Valadares and Desembargador Drumond in the Brazilian Federal State Minas Gerais in 4K/60 frames per second. The Vitória-Minas Railway (Estrada de Ferro Vitória a Minas; EFVM) is a metre gauge railway line linking the cities of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais and Vitória, Espírito Santo, in Brazil. It is a 905 km line with a minimum curve radius of 195 metres and a maximum ramp of 1.5%, which allows a maximum speed of 67 kilometres per hour. The first stretch of the railway was inaugurated in 1904 with the initial aim of transporting passengers by rail and transporting the coffee production of the Rio Doce Valley and Espírito Santo. However, its focus changed in 1908 transporting the iron ore to the port complexes of Espírito Santo. In 1991, the railway reached the capital of Minas Gerais. The train crosses a region with a significant amount of mountains and rivers and typical vegetation alternating between Atlantic Forest and Cerrado, with a large part of its length on the banks of the Doce River, until it reaches the beaches of Espírito Santo. Together with the Carajás Railway (Pará-Maranhão) in the Northeast of Brazil, it is one of the last railways to carry out passenger transport over long distances, maintaining a total of 30 boarding and disembarking points served along the 664 kilometres covered by the passenger train. A train departs daily from Cariacica, in the metropolitan region of Vitória, Espírito Santo, bound for Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais and in the opposite direction. Altogether it is a 13h 30 min journey. Both lines are operated by Vale Company which has an extensive logistics network to quickly integrate mines, railroads, ships and ports present on approximately 2000 kilometres of railroad network in Brazil.
