Passengers return to the train after stopping in Engenheiro Lange, formerly known as Parada da Volta Grande, at kilometer 55.9. This spot was also called "Ponto do Café" ["Coffee Stop"], since passengers traditionally took advantage of the five-or-so-minute pause to have a cup of coffee. The Taquaral viaduct can be seen on the side of the mountain. Postcard published circa 1930.
