Traspasando Fronteras

Puro poder despliega el FCAB en su magnífico viaje desde Calama hacia Ollagüe y luego el regreso, para realizar intercambio de equipos en plena frontera con el Boliviano Ferrocarril Andino (FCA) y sus brillantes Locomotoras Hitachi Mitsubishi. En este caso, arrastrando las ollas de transporte de mineral de zinc, plata y plomo, ya habiendo pasado el sector de San Pedro y próximo a ingresar al punto mas bonito de todo el recorrido, el paso por Ascotan y Carcote y sus bellos Salares rodeados de Volcanes y en donde las nubes "se pueden alcanzar con la mano".

 

Formation of the Chilean railway company FCAB, coming from the seaport of Mejillones, and a large crossing, heading towards Ollagüe, a town located on the border with Bolivia to almost 4000 meters. This train has been shipping containers minerals: silver, lead and zinc from the "San Cristobal" mining company of Bolivia. In Ollagüe comes loaded train Bolivian minerals, and they exchange cars, so that the load is going to seaport and be exported. In the picture, the FCAB train near the highest point of the voyage, the "Ascotan Pass", a wonderful environment surrounded by salars, volcanoes, and where the clouds hug you.
