Rail car and 20 000 tonnes of iron ore

En route from Marabá to Carajás - The ongoing and new members of the Module 2B group assembled in Marabá in the state of Para, for the start of the module.   However, a wash-out on the main road to Carajás following heavy rains overnight necessitated alternate arrangements in the form of travel by rail van.   Right: Passing another 20 000 tonnes of Carajás ore on its way to the port of São Luís on the Atlantic coast.
