Very great metro! I'd like to know more information about it, for example: are there vocal informations inside the train? How many stations have lifts? Why doesn't exist line 3?

Line 3 was supposed to have been built in the late 1980's, but central Chile (including Santiago) had a strong earthquake in 1985 that killed a few hundred people. The funds set aside for the expansion of the Metro were used to deal with the consequences of the earthquake and plans for Line 3 have been shelved ever since. In addition, the city has grown and changed since the "master plan" of the Metro was drawn-up in the mid 1960's and the Metro has prioritized expansion into other areas of Santiago (south, southeast, and now with the current expansions to be completed by 2009, west and southwest).

Line 3 would have an "L" shaped route. It would begin at Plaza EgaNa (now a station on Line 4) and would head west, paralleling Line1, passing Line 5 near/at Irarrazaval before turning sharply north and crossing Line 1 at Universidad de Chile (the tunnels and etrances/exits for a future Line 3 have been in place since the station's construction in the early 1970's), continuing past Plaza de Armas (Line 4) and crossing Line 2 and Cal y Canto before crossing the Mapocho river and heading roughly NW into the municipality of Conchali (I don't exactly know where L3 is supposed to go once it crosses the river and goes north). I'll leave for you a map showing approximately where the future Line 3 will be located if/when it's built.

It bears a strong resemblance to Barcelona's Metro system- the station layout, the access bridges and the lok and feel of the stations all remind me of Barcelona..which is a good thing..i love Barcelona's Metro system..

This looks great though...must admit that i am envious..

Nice station and train. I noticed that North and South American countries don't like to have overhang wires on their metros unlike Asia.

Nice pics! Will Line 4 and 4a remain separate in maps in the future (once it's built)?

boleto unitario, horario reducido

[SIZE=2][SIZE=7][FONT=Times New Roman]Boleto unitario, horario reducido. En el otro anden van hacia el otherside, se van por el techo, las copas y los cables, en ciertas habitaciones pasan por el muro, la ventana, el afiche o la pantaia, todo es en pantaia. El aprecio es el extasis del formato, la comunion de la forma. En plena desestabilizacion de los habitos emerge la mudulacion de los habitats, las habilidades nuevamente son puestas a prueba y mutan en la sofisticacion de las tecnologias. Metabolizandose, el trasporte de cargas multiples libera la economia, se envia contra si misma, como pura suspencion del deseo, emulsion de nuestro aliento, la fuerza desprendida en la encantadora sugestion de los materiales.[/FONT]

NOT TOO IMPRESSED. ROLLING STOCK IS OUTDATED. STATIONS ARE TOO SIMPLETON. BUT NOT BAD AFTER ALL. LOOKS FINE FOR A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY.(ECONOMY SHOULD BE GOOD, RIGHT?)

ON THE RIGHT TRACK, JUST NEEDS TO BE UPDATED (TRAIN CARS ARE SO 1970'S)

OK THIS LINE LOOKS FRESHER , THAN OTHER LINES, STATIONS LOOK MORE LIKE EG: ROOSEVELT ISLAND STATION IN NEW YORK. TRAIN STOCK IS A BIT MORE MODERN THAN YOUR REGULAR TRAINS( SORT OF REMINDED ME OF MEXICO CITY'S 1980'S TRAIN STOCK.GOOD APPROACH.IN THE RIGHT TRACK. BY THE WAY, LOOKING AT PEOPLE FROM LINE 4 STATIONS , IS LIKE LOOKING AT PEOPLE IN MEXICO CITY STATIONS. QUESTION? IS CHILE A HISPANIC COUNTRY? I THOUGHT IT WAS SORT OF LIKE IN SOUTHERN EURPE , OR EAST ASIA.CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG. GREAT PHOTOS.

chile is not european

chile is from south america.I guess they are ,like mexicans, because they are hispanic.
you probably right about the line 4 in santiago. is the most modern one ,so far. I guess. the train cars dont look like mexican trains, mexican train were updated early this year so mexican train cars are the most modern in latin america .then san juan, puerto ricos come second, then third is colombias , city of Medellin Metro, if I am not mistaken.

I also was confused when I heard the name Chile. I honestly thought , that it was some region in Mexico, because Mexicans always talk about chile.Later was I clarify that Mexicos culture call a vegetable which is very spicy chile.

so that was the explanation

chile in mexico, means a spicy vegetable

Chile in south america is a small developing nation

dont agree with you oject2k6. may be the rolling stock is outdated ,according to modern standards, from what i heard. The stations are not luxiourious,, but hey, you cant ask for first world architecture and design , from a small developing nation. right?
santiago's metro may not be the marvel of urban transit, but it sure is practical.
