Review of Chile - Rails Through the Long & Dry - Electric Steam Diesel DVD

Think Longitude. String bean Chile offers landscapes one might expect of Mars, and yet rails thread their way through this stark and terrifying vastness. The Atacama region, driest on this planet, possesses untold riches in copper and nitrates. 6% grades and panoramas unequaled anywhere await on the Arica-La Paz line into Bolivia. Wildly colorful ex Newfoundland narrow gauge GP's roll along Antofagasta & Boliva while G.E. 1927 vintage G.E. boxcabs hum along 4% grades on the Tocopilla al Toco, hauling nitrates and chemicals to the Pacific. See "Little Joes" in Santiago, the world's biggest open pit copper mine, some great steam, plus shops, cab rides, port views and a host of other railroad delights! Two great hours of wonderful diversity, filmed 1991 to 2001.
