Locomotive Nameplate BENEVIDES. Believed to be ex Baldwin 2-6-0 metre gauge Locomotive number 9822 built February 1889 for Estrada De Ferro Braganca in Brazil. Transferred at some point to Estrada De Ferro Tocatins where records show still extant in 1960. However, the line closed and was dismantled completely by 1974, the loco, presumably, was cut up then or even beforehand. The plate is 24 x 5 with ornate, capital lettering. Few traces of what looks like dark blue or grey paint along the top edge.
