Among the famous ALCO locomotives on the old Central Brazil Railway tracks the number 370 was very popular with passengers and was lovingly christened "Zeze Leone" in honor of the first Miss Brazil, elected in 1923. Its conductor Carlos Pereira da Rocha who drove it between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, gave it this nickname and made sure that his locomotive did not discredit him. Its metal parts were always glittering and when it was not running, he brought his own children to help him polish it. When "Zeze Leone" passed through the Rio suburbs, Carlos Rocha would blow the whistle repeatedly to let all the neighborhood know "Zeze Leone" was passing, and everyone flocked to their windows to watch it. It was used to haul the night train "Cruzeiro do Sul". The locomotive was built in 1922 by the American Locomotive Company, 4-6-2 two cylinder type, with superheating, and its service weight was 95,250 kg.
