Spectacular photos Mario! You really pulled it off! Great job! It's incredible how the Santiago Metro network has grown so massively the last 10-15 years! Back in 2000 The Metro had an extension of 40,4 km and now it's reached amazing 103 km! Not bad for the capital of a small and upcoming country.
It's grown over 60 km in 10 years. Now it will really take off...

Off course is not bad! and by 2015 will by 136 kms ! for the opening of the new lines, L3 and L6.





PD: Btw I am surprised by the low post that has this opening, we are not Paris but the system is excellent (fast, clean, and safe) and it is very important to Santiago, we have the second latin american sistem in extension, and one of the few in the world that is self-financed ...

But who cares..

Impressive growth indeed! By 2015 the city should have a very good coverage, and with the bus feeder lines an efficient system. It will be interesting to have some ridership figures by then.

Indeed and you're absolutely right about that! Today already over 2 million people use the Metro on a daily basis. Guess what! The Metro de Santiago also has its own stats page! http://www.metrosantiago.cl/guia-viajero/densidad

Cheers!

Wonderful videos. I especially love the sound of the NS93/MP89 along the new extension.

I help you, "trinchera" is a "trench", in downtown Santiago there is a highway built this way. Metro "line 2" was built in the middle of this highway, maintaining the constructive method.



Some pics

Autopista Central










Toesca Metro Station (Line 2)

Okay, I see now, Thanks (Gracias)

I only speak very little Spanish. Here in the US, I took Spansion classes in high school, but nearly everything I learned went right out the window, so I only retained the basics, barely enough to even have a conversation with a Spanish speaking person.
