Déjà vu, a train journey.


Beekbergen, 03 July – Veluwsche Stroomtrein Maatschappij: Train adventure. Embark on a steam train to travel back in time.

THE TRAIN TO THE WEST by Claudia Falcão and Sandra Porto
Published in 1999 – Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul. The book was a Journalism course’s final project at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul

Last Sunday took me back to 1999, when Sandra Porto and I published the book “A TRAIN TO THE WEST”.  This book was a final university project, the first of its kind. The book has an old-fashioned and minimalist look. It is in hard cover and in A3  landscape format.

We aimed to describe a romantic overview of the personages involved on the construction of the railway Noroeste do Brasil.  We followed their tracks to discover a hidden story and to unveil the influences that these people brought to the west of Brazil. It was a complex journey to do, travelling with strangers to see old stations and taking photos of abandoned trains.

Anyway, we enjoyed our first adventure as junior journalists.
