Uma velha parada/An old stop
A 2km da vicinal que liga São Manuel à Barra Bonita, a Estação de Rodrigues Alves te leva a um passado esquecido há mais de 50 anos. Com mais de 100 anos de existência, os prédios da estação lutam para permanecer de pé e contra o mato que invade de todos os lados. Ao lado, a antes próspera vila de Rodrigues Alves e a Fazenda Simões está sendo restaurada, o que só fortalece o contraste com a velha estação.//The 2 km from the road that connects San Manuel to Barra Bonita, Rodrigues Alves´ Station takes you to a forgotten past for more than 50 years.
