By 1991, I used to visit Marilia pretty regularly. The railway line was still working. I made a point of always carrying my Nikkon camera and every time the train coming East-West or West-East stopped at Marilia's station I would go out in search of a photo opportunity. This is one of those times... this particular train came from the West and was bound for São Paulo... when I saw those kids so eager to be photographed I didn' think twice...
