Amazing pictures-Chanaral railways

The Chanaral - Llantas Potrerillos line in Chile is one of the most stunning railways in the world. It connects Chanaral at the Pacific coast with Potrerillos, a remote mining town in the Andes on 2850m/ 9350ft. On the last 66km between Llantas and Potrerillos, the railroad first passes a rugged, lonesome valley and finally winds up to the terminus of the line, passing a breathtaking mountain scenery. The Railroad Chanaral - Potrerillos, today operated by Ferronor, actually belongs to Codelco, a state owned copper mining company.
