Dear brothers and sisters-in-rails,
My first railroad postcard is finished. Title in Portuguese reads "Railway workmen's life in Linha Auxiliar" and postcard intends to depict the day-by-day of railway workers at Linha Auxiliar, a railroad which crosses many favelas (shanty-towns) in suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Cartoon was based on true incident, when drug traffickers from Comando Vermelho (C.V) stopped a repairment railcar and forced workers to take them from a favela to another.

My intention is, at same time, to bring tradition of railroad postcards back, very common in the beggining of century 20, as well as to make a registration of troubled times in Rio de Janeiro city and Brazil.
If you are interested to get a copy free-of-charge, please, write to my email firstname.lastname@example.org informing your name and complete address.
Hope you like!
Thank you very much!
