Built in 1930 in Kassel, Germany, by the Henschel & Sohn railway locomotive and material factory. The 'Tentugal' locomotive for years has become a mystery in the world of Brazilian steam locomotives, based on countless research, you will read here what may be the slightly more complete story about this machine. In a German book of the time, it is stated that indeed the Ten-Coupled 0-10-0 locomotive was purchased by VFFLB (East Brazilian) under its original registration # 8; however this does not quite fit the track record, since in the factory archives including a very clear black and white photograph where the initials LF 8 CB. Ok appear in the tender, number 8 proves that the locomotive came from Germany with In this case, the initials LFCB do not judge Eastern Brazil, but a sugar mill from which the machine had first worked; This is shown by this fact: the Brazilian East could have bought the machine, and in the end is the meaning for the initials: LFCB (Central Barreiros Railway); the former Barreiros Central Plant located in the city of Barreiros-PE that today rests in ruins. The machine arrived at the Central Barreiros Plant with the number # 8, and also with its baptismal name 'Tentugal' due to the location of the tracks that connected the plant, Engenho Tentugal. There is a legend that during the unloading of the locomotive at the port, it fell into the sea but was soon removed, recovered and delivered to traffic; There are also very old photographs I believe from the late 1930s of the "refurbishing" locomotive, which may prove yet another exotic fact about the machine after all. why a brand new locomotive with little use or practically unused would be under renovation, right? Tentugal had its original registration number # 8 until the late 1950s or mid-1960s, when it was sold to Usina São José in the Campos-RJ region, where the machine received a series of updates, including a distinctive and eye-catching blue color painting, as well as its # 50 number plate. Later the locomotive was sold to another plant nearby, the Santo Amaro Plant where the locomotive underwent very few changes, even the painting was the same as the one conceived at the São José Plant, blue color with white and yellow fillets and the name of the plant. In the tender, the differential was that in the São José mill the logo in the tender was red and in the Santo Amaro mill was painted yellow. Plant locomotives never followed a pattern, so they were circus-colored. In the late 1980s, the 'Tentugal' locomotive was put up for sale, José Engliberto de Oliveira (in memory) was able to purchase the machine and delivered it to ABPF-Campinas preservation care, where the locomotive now boasts its new look in the green color Sorocabana style and carries a plaque in honor of his grandfather Bento Bueno de Oliveira (Nhô Bento).
