See below for a list of steam locomotives used and seen:

(See also the other lists on this site from Eddie Edumndson - North East Brazil and Rest of Brazil - and Torstern Schneider Brazil. It would be nice to have an accurate current all-Brazil list to assist future visitors, it's a large country with a huge number of steam locos. There is a book Inventario das Locomotivas a Vapor no Brazil by Regina Perez published in 2006 which is said to list 419 extant steam locomotives, for more information, email coordenador@memoriaferroviaria.com.br.  The ISBN is 85-906677-0-7.)
