Great trailer about Chilean trains from, the Chilean page for Railfans. (In Chile called 'Ferroaficionados')
Wonderful pictures of the Empresa de los Ferrocarriles del Estado from the early 70ies, mainly south of Santiago. Only few pictures exist from that era with broad gauge steam and old electrics - back at the time when Railroads played still a major role in Chile.
