April 30 is marked by the commemoration of Railroad Day, a way of honoring all the railway workers scattered across Brazil. The date was chosen because of the inauguration of the first Brazilian railway line, the Estrada de Ferro Petrópolis, which took place on April 30, 1854. And since we usually do specials on each commemorative date, we have selected 5 movies shot on trains that are available in the main streams. Check!
