EFPP Crane Car
This folder documents that crane car which was built late on the PerusPirpora out of an original 4 axle tender. The EFPP 2-4-0 has Baldwin Dwg.327 4-wheel tender with 18in dia cast (spoked?) wheels and a 500ga tank. 6" Channels My assumption is that it came originally from one of the EFPP 2-4-0s Vol44p190-60cmEFPP_6-10C17dwg7_2-4-0 No4-DrSylvioDeCamposSN39061 V39p237-60cmEFPP_6-10C16dwg7_2-4-0 No3-Dr.Jambeiro-SN37570 View Photos
The only engine that got away...shortly after the operation was stopped in 1983 the owners Abdallha sold or donated this engine to the city of Dumount, the home of the original Coffee railroad Santos Dumount. This engine is pretty complete and protected in the city park. I hope that we will be able to make a study trip in 2011 to photograph and measure this engine. The following pictures are recovered from the Internet, mostly Google Earth. 21°14''''''''19.17"S 47°58''''''''28.44"W View Photos
EFPP-NO13_BALDWIN1901_2-6-0_NO_18897 11x18in Cylinders 36in dia wheels, Originally Ramal Dumont No.5, joined EFPP 1942. This is a very, very worn out engine, maybe two wheel sets are in Gato Preto. The cylinders are cracked and have been repaired it remains to be seen if it was originally an 0-6-0. Currently on the Deadline in Cajamar, sooner or later she will end at Corredor or Km2.2 Museum. It would be interesting to see if there is a way to find another group to restore her. View Photos
Originally a 2-6-2T from 1891 it has 12"x16" with 33" wheels was originally R.R. Campineiro No.2 and came to the EFPP reportedly in 1961 the engine was originally named "Campinas". View Photos
FFM-Teddy Bear Day
Every year on the first weekend in April the Frankfurter Feldbahn Museum hosts their "Teddy Bar", a day that celebrates children and invites all families with their children to explore and experience the museum with operating steam and diesel field railway trains. Entrance for the little ones is free if accompanied from their favorite teddy bar. For the Kids the high point is around 3pm the teddy bear costume contest where the best dressed teddies are presented for and judging, naturally all are judged as winners and given prizes. In 2011 I visited on this special day and was please at the turn out and how many kids are running around, next year I will present my then 13month old son also... View Photos
Es handelt sich um die 1925 bei Orenstein & Koppel in Berlin unter der Fabriknummer 11073 gebaute fünfachsige Naßdampf-Feldbahndampflok E103 der kaiserlichen japanischen Heeeresfeldbahn.

The Frankfurter Field Railway Museum has an impressive collection of vehicles beside the 17 steam locomotives. Among these are 3 World War I Technologie Benzonol, more than 23 Diesel, 3 Electrical and 7 special locomotives or vehicles. The museum has just published an inventory of all these vehicles available for €5. Since it is in German and there is are only one picture per vehicle I will include pictures here. View Photos

It is probably the most famous narrow gauge railway in Austria. It is built from 1900 till 1902. The last part was finished on July 31 1902. The line stretches from Jenbach in the Inntal to Mayrhofen in the heart of the Zillertal. Originally freight transport concerned only agricultural products. From 1929 till 1976 also magnesium from a mine in the Zillertal was transported. In later days also the timber mills in the valley made use of the line. At the moment almost all freight transport has come to an end.The line is however important as a means of transportation for the local population and for the numerous tourists that vist the Zillertal and the surrounding mountains.

The Magor Car Corporation Edward S. Kaminski (Author) "The Magor Car Corp., located in Clifton, New Jersey, was a significant railcar builder throughout much of the twentieth century. It had its origins in a partnership founded in 1899 by Basil Magor and Robert Wonham, which led in 1902 to a manufacturing operation called the Wonham-Magor Engineering Works. "In the first part of the century Magor concentrated on export railcars. Basil''s brother Robert Magor, also became associated with the company, and in 1910 it became the Magor Car Co. It was incorporated in 1917 as the Magor Car Corp.; among its major stockholders was J.P. Morgan. "In 1914 Magor''s first freight cars for use on an American railroad were built. US sales grew steadily thereafter, though export cars continued as the company''s mainstay for some years. In 1918, Magor was among the many firms which built cars for the USRA as part of its effort to construct 100,000 standard freight cars. "During World Wars I & II as well as during the Korean conflict Magor was called on for thousands of export cars for military needs, and was a principal builder of cars for Europe under the Marshall Plan. In 1959 Magor built its first aluminum-bodied covered hopper cars- the first such to be placed in U.S. revenue service. "Magor''s sale in 1964 to Fruehauf Corp. marked many changes. Declining railcar sales during the 1960s led to Magor''s closure in 1973. Magor was an important builder of American freight cars. * Hardcover: 200 pages * Publisher: Signature Press; 1 (of one) edition (2000) * ISBN-10: 1930013043 * ISBN-13: 978-1930013049 View Photos
The Linke-Hoffman locomotives where the last new locomotives purchased by the Company Paulista. These German engines were selected after the predominately Baldwin supplied railroad as Baldwin declined to produce new 60cm/2ft engines. These engines operated under the Railroad No.920 (Builder No.3085) and No.910 (unknown builders No.). Both locomotives still exist, sort of, the No.920 was sold to a Sugar factory and regauged to meter gauge, I definitely want to visit this engine and figure out how they spread the frame of this inside, plate frame locomotive. No.910 was sold the Perus Pirapora railroad and suffered a head-on collision with another locomotive sometime in the 60s. Apparently the damage was so great that the boiler was scrapped. But the frame, wheels and most of the running gear, valve gear and part of the cab sit on the deadline at the mine in Cajamar. Also of note the trailing was changed from an inside the frame, inside supported wheel set to an outside the frame supported trailing truck which looks similar to American ALCO construction style.

The Linke-Hoffman locomotives where some of the last new locomotives purchased Ramal Férreo de Santa Rita. Headquartered in the City of Encontrar in the state of Sao Paulo, Builder No.3085 was Numbered No.14, No.3084 was Numbered No.13. These German engines were selected after the predominately Baldwin supplied railroads, as Baldwin declined to produce new 60cm/2ft engines in 1926. These engines were later sold to Cia. Paulista de Estradas de Ferro CPEF [Brasilien] where they were numbered No.920 (Builder No.3085) and No.910 (Builder No.3084). No.910 was sold the Perus Pirapora railroad in 1957 as their Engine Number No.9. Later it suffered a head-on collision with either No.11 or No.2 in 1962 which caused the engine to be disassembled. The frame, all running gear and some of the cab still exist. Possibly the boiler was repaired for use in the cement kiln in Gato Preto. Also of note the trailing was changed from an inside the frame, inside supported wheel set to an outside the frame supported trailing truck which looks similar to American ALCO construction style. In 19?? the engine No.920 (Builder No.3085) was sold to Usina Serra Grande S.A. Alagaoas where it was regauged to 1000mm. At some time later it ended at the Parque Municipal do Vale do Itaim - Taubaté - SP Call the Secretaria Municipal de Meio Ambiente e Turismo de Taubaté (12) 224-4195 GPS 23° 2''''25.49"S 45°31''''49.35"W View Photos
Koordinaten: 22°51''31"S 47°1''47"W ABPF - Trem turístico entre Jaguariúna e Campinas Senhores. Este final de semana resolvi passear em Jaguariúna, como não poderia deixar de ser andei na maria-fumaça e fiz metade do percurso. Para quem não sabe, o trecho de 24Km fazia parte da antiga linha tronco da Mogiana, entre Anhumas na cidade de Campinas-SP e Jaguariúna. O trecho foi cedido em comodato em 1979 peça FEPASA para a ABPF. Não vou citar aqui as mazelas da ABPF, mas quero deixar o meu simples e amador registro em fotos, e uma ou outra foto da agradável Jaguariúna. O passeio ocorre em diversos horários, o preço foi de R$:30,00 para o percurso completo e R$:20,00 para o meio percurso, fiz o meio percurso por conta da duração da viagem 1:30 Hrs, sendo que a completa dizem levar 3:00 Hrs, até que foi um bom negócio, já que o trem estava infestado de crianças barulhetas... A composição do meio percurso no dia saiu com a locomotiva, mais um carro de passageiros de segunda classe e um carro restaurante. O percurso completo sai com vários carros, incluíndo os de primeira classe. A ABPF resgata a história do trem e do café. Restauramos e mantemos em funcionamento várias linhas turísticas.

Das Frankfurter Feldbahnmuseum e.V.
stellt sich vor:

Seit über 30 Jahren bemühen wir uns nun schon um die betriebfähige Erhaltung von historischen Feldbahnfahrzeugen. Zwei Dinge standen während dieser Zeit im Mittelpunkt: einmal die oft schwierige Beschaffung von Fahrzeugen und feldbahntypischem Geräten, um eine repräsentative Sammlung bieten zu können, zum anderen der kontinuierliche Aufbau des Frankfurter Feldbahnmuseum als Ganzes.

Wir glauben, dass wir dieses Ziel erreicht haben. Immerhin kann ein Großteil unserer Fahrzeugsammlung in betriebsfähigem Zustand präsentiert werden und die Anerkennung als Museum durch die Aufnahme im Hessischen Museumsverband und im Deutschen Museumsbund bestätigen diesen Erfolg. Dennoch wollen wir uns mit dem bisher Erreichten nicht zufrieden geben.

Unser Ziel ist es, ein attraktives und weit über die Frankfurter Stadtgrenzen hinaus bekanntes Museum aufzubauen.

DIEMA was ordered from the factory in 1938 and was delivered to a distributor in Brazil in 1939.  It is not known if our DIEMA was delivered directly to EFPP or was bought second hand as the most locomotives. The earliest picture is in the 1960s pulling the Ford Railbus to transport the school teachers from Perus to Cajamar. View Photos
Brigadeloks Dn2T

Die Brigadeloks

Nachdem das Leistungspotential der Doppellokomotiven, auch Zwillinge genannt, nicht mehr ausreichte, wurde in den Jahren 1904/05 bei Henschel der Prototyp der späteren Brigadelok entwickelt. Die 75 PS starke D-gekuppelte Tenderlok mit Klien-Lindner-Hohlachsen und dem langen, schmalen Schornstein mit dem hochangesetzten Kobel  wurde zu der Heeresfeldbahnlokomotive des ersten Weltkrieges.

Werkfoto Henschel

Von 1905 bis 1919 wurden ca. 2500 Stück gebaut, dementsprechend groß ist die Anzahl der heute noch vorhandenen Lokomotiven. Zur Vergrößerung der Reichweite wurde für die Lokomotiven ein eigener Wasserwagen gebaut.  http://www.heeresfeldbahn.de/
