We took the short route, about an hour and a half round trip from Jaguariuna, and really enjoyed it as did our 2-year old boy! We arrived early and had lunch at the train station, which also had a small museum (only worth visiting if you're bored or unusually obsessed with trains), a little fair area with some booths selling toys and crafts, and a steam engine you can explore.

The train itself had the engine, a car behind the engine to hold all of the wood and water (these trains burn wood, not coal), and two passenger cars although on the way back we joined the return trip from Campinas on a much longer train. Our engine was from 1895 and built in Philadelphia, so it was the real deal. The tracks are not well-maintained, so the train rocks back and forth quite a bit which I found more fun. The windows also go down which is nice.

The ride went through the train yard with tons of old engines and cars, where you stop at an unusued stations and can get out for a couple of minutes. You then proceed to another unused station where you get off, and then climb aboard the return from Campinas. Merchants walk the aisles selling ice cream, toys, and music. Our son is still talking about it!

Experience a back and forth 3.5 hours trip aboard a 19th century steam train through historic farms of coffee in a railway built to link plantations to trade areas. This tour supports a civil society organization to keep alive the memory of the railway. .
