Really interesting, Enhander. Has anyone planned a rail connection to the airport? From Pudahuel station it should be 7-8 km, not more...
It would be really useful, when I took a car from the city center the roads were really congested..

there is a future plan of a light railway or tram to the airport, but first they are waiting to build the next steps of the airport, and some comercial centers (malls) in the way. The area need first more people movement.

In the near future a LRT might be implemented running from the airport down to L1. Stay tuned for more news...

The stations are beautiful and the trains are all very modern looking. I especially like the NS 74 & NS 93, replicas of their Parisien counterparts the MP 73 & MP 89.

I think the same . Additionally, I like the very beautiful lines 4 and 4A, and the AS-2002 trains. We have some trains in São Paulo that resemble them, because they were manufactured by Alstom Lapa, São Paulo.

I saw somewhere (maybe on Wikipedia but I'm not sure) that the Chilean President spoke about the Line n°3. I have a few questions concerning that.

1) Why is there a line n°2 and a line n°4 and no n°3? When the metro began to be built, why didn't they give the number 3 to the third line which was built?

2) Is it true that the President gave any information concerning that project?

3) If yes, what is supposed to be the orientation of the line?

From http://www.urbanrail.net/am/sant/santiago.htm

Line 3 was originally planned to run from Plaza Chacabuco (Santiago Racecourse) to Plaza Egaña (La Reina), it would be extended further north to Conchalí (at Américo Vespucio Ringroad) under Independencia Av. (where one of the light rail branches would be built). It would meet line 2 at Puente Cal y Canto, line 5 at Plaza de Armas, line 1 at Universidad de Chile, line 5 again at Irarrázaval, and line 4 at Plaza Egaña.

I help you

1) Because months before construction occurs earthquake(7.8°Righter) in central Chile. Resources for the L3, were used in reconstruction. Then the city grew to the south wherethe goverment built the L4, but always retaining the name "L3"

2) Yes, after the advertisement of the future L6, the president announces the L3 as part of an expansion pack for 2014.

3)

As previously announced two more lines will be added to the Santiago Metro.
Those will be lines 3 and 6. Construction will commence next year and it will last for approximately 4 to 5 years.

More information will follow in the coming weeks.

Cheers.
