Peru Progress 2001 Part 2 DVD
FERROVIAS CENTRAL ANDINA is turning the tide! Ride freight trains into the High Andes in June, 2001, and experience the thrill of railroading on the highest, most rugged standard gauge anywhere! A second ride covers the connecting CERRO DE PASCO line - whose lowest point is 12,272 feet above sea level! Our 1991 Brazilian loco works her guts out to maintain jogging speed on the ruling grade. And, there are still plenty of Alcos around, as viewed on our first Peru tape, "INCA ALCOS." Visit Chosica headquarters, and learn about future plans - which may involve the longest tunnel in the Western Hemisphere.

Three other operations are covered on this program: The TACNA & ARICA, whose unique Wickham rail buses will likely roll no more; SOUTHERN PERU COPPER with old Alcos and modern EMDs and G.E.s. We ride a "mixed" away from the coast at llo into the desert. Finally some more coverage of the PERU SOUTHERN line to Mollendo in 1999, briefly glimpsed at the end of our first tape. We plan to cover the new PERU RAIL on a future program. Come on board!!
