The new trains X'trapolis Modular and new lines express

Alstom X’Trapolis Modular








The Chilean rail operator, Grupo EFE, (Empresa de Ferrocarriles del Estado, the State Rail Company) has planned by the end of this year the debut of the new express line between Santiago's central station "Alameda" and the town of Nos, journey will take approximately 20 minutes at a frequency of 8 minutes and 4 minutes in the hours peaks.



At the beginning of 2016 is time to the Rancagua Express from "Alameda" in Santiago and Rancagua to ride 81.8 km with 18 stations and 16 new trains X'trapolis Modular will take 50 minutes, (this way today between Santiago to Rancagua takes one hour 20 minutes), the new trains will have a frequency of 30 minutes and 15 minutes at peak hours. Demand is expected to 23,000,000 passengers per year. They will make the trip in less time than a bus.

Buenas a todos desde Nueva Zelanda,

mi nombre es Tim y estoy interesado para modelar el FCAB y de la FCA en HOn3.5. Con foco en el lugar donde los trenes son Ollague intercambiada entre las dos compañías ferroviarias. El tipo FCAB de locomotoras están disponibles en modelos Wuiske en Australia, sólo tengo que pintarlo en colores FCAB. Más difícil será para construir el tipo Empresa Ferroviaria Andina S.A. FCA locomotora modelo 32M BFA construido por Hitachi y Mitsubishi en Japón. Lamentablemente no tengo el dibujo técnico con las mediciones y parece imposible de encontrar en la red con la búsqueda de google. También tengo FCA directa contactado a través de Facebook y correo electrónico, pero no he tenido una sola respuesta de ninguno de ellos. Si cualquiera que lea esto tiene alguna información acerca de la locomotora FCA BFA 32M o conoce a alguien que me pueda ayudar con esta información sería muy apreciada que.

Gracias, Tim

Hello, my name is Tim and I am from New Zealand. I am interested to build a model of the Empresa Ferroviaria Andina S.A. / FCA in HOn3.5 and for that I am looking to get a copy of some blueprints or dimensional drawings of the model Hitachi-Mitsubishi 32M BFA locomotive. If you have some information or if you know someone who can help me to get these information that would be very appreciated. I tried to contact FCA direct via Facebook and email but I never got any reply. Thank you, Tim

EFE unveils US$7∙5bn masterplan
25 Sep 2015



CHILE: Grupo EFE President Jorge Inostroza unveiled a US$7⋅5bn investment masterplan on September 23, which aims to increase traffic on the state railway from 30 million to 100 million passenger-journeys a year by 2022. ‘No predecessor of mine has ever presented a plan like this’, said Inostroza, noting that EFE had pursued a policy of ‘patch and mend’ for the last 30 years.

The masterplan contains 18 projects, including a $1⋅2bn programme to increase capacity between Santiago and Valparaíso to accommodate 6 million passenger-journeys and 21 million tonnes of freight a year. Cutting journey times between Santiago and Concepción to 4 h would require spending of $1⋅68bn, while an ‘inter-city’ service connecting Victoria, Temuco, Freire and Loncoche is forecast to carry 930 000 passengers a year

Alstom EMUs enter service in Valparaíso
Tuesday, December 01, 2015





CHILEAN commuter rail operator Valparaíso Regional Metro (Merval) officially launched its new fleet of Alstom X'Trapolis Modular EMUs on December 1, when the first trains entered passenger service on the 43km Valparaíso - Limache line

Chilean State Railways (EFE) placed an order last year with Alstom for 12 trains, eight of which will be used by Merval with the remaining sets destined for Santiago - Nós - Rancagua Rancagua Xpress services. The trains for Valparaíso were funded by Merval and the Chilean Ministry of Transport at a cost of $US 44.5m

Question!

What is the gauge situation in Chile?

From the pictures it looks like you guys have lines in at least three gauges. Narrow gauge on some desert lines, standard gauge with US imports operating on them, and broad (Argentine?) gauge with those new Alstom units.

Does the country have a standardized gauge? What about direct rail connections to its neighbors?

We could say it like this: Metric to the north, broad to the south.

From La Calera (near Valparaíso) to the north, the dominant gauge is the narrow one. Most part of that network is privately-owned (including a ~2.000 network sold by the chilean state in the '90s).

From La Calera to the south, it's broad gauge: 1.676 mm, like the argentinian broad gauge, and owned by the Chilean State Railways (EFE, in spanish). There are some metric-gauge branches in Talca (to Constitución, in the coastal range) and Los Andes (the former Transandine Railway).

There are some exceptions in parts of the country (standard gauge, cape gauge, 0.600 mm gauge), serving mines or some industries.
