This research has the general objective of exploring heritage interpretation in the industrial heritage of railways, as well as studying models of industrial tourist routes and identifying the appropriate resources for railway goods. Therefore, the specific objective is: to study which models of tourist itineraries and interpretive instruments are used in proposals for the visitation of tourist attractions, and also to observe if there are specific models for industrial / rail goods; identify which protected assets in Campinas are relevant from the point of view of the tourist visit; to establish what tourist infrastructure and interpretive resources are offered at rail sites; and finally, to test a tourist route model that would attend to the pedagogical visitation of industrial goods in Campinas. In order to reach the proposed objectives, we will use methods that will be primordial, which are bibliographical survey that will be made through readings, a tourist inventory, especially the Ministry of Tourism (2017), a data sheet - Murta - and finally, an analytical item, whose purpose is to make a comparison between the objectives - A, B and C. In this way, the expected results will be information that will give subsidies for models of tourist routes applied in the industrial goods in Campinas.
