The Donna Teresa Cristina Railway, a coal hauling railroad in Southeast Brazil, has utilized many Baldwin built steam locomotives, culminating in 2-10-4s and 2-6-6-2s ordered in the late 1940s. The 2-6-6-2s, numbered 200 through 205, were operated on a single branch line from the docks at Imbituba along the Tuberao River to a coal mine at Lauro Muller. The rail on this branch was too light for the 2-10-4s and as a result the 2-6-6-2s were the main power on the Lauro Muller line. In the early 1970s, flooding destroyed much of the line from Imbituba to Lauro Muller and as a result, the 2-6-6-2s were retired. #204 was kept operational and fired up occasionally for the enjoyment of tourist groups. Today, three of the Teresa Cristina 2-6-6-2s are still in existence, #205 is reportedly on display at the Teresa Cristina company headquarters, #203 is derelict at Tuberao, and #204 is in storage at Rio Negrinho. Reportedly, #'s 203 and 204 are now owned by the ABPF, a railway preservation organization in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
