Indra awarded Chilean communications contract
07 Jun 2016



CHILE: State railway EFE has awarded Indra a 10-year contract worth €6·9m to supply, install and maintain a multiservice Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Label Switching data communications network covering more than 550 km of railway between and around Santiago and Concepción.

The IP/MPLS network will carry data for voice communications, traffic control, CCTV and security systems and the remote control of electrification equipment. Indra will also repair optic fibre links which were damaged by an earthquake in 2010

Just three weeks??? Did you perhaps meant three months or even three years? Surely that bridge has to be rebuilt from scratch...

I know, I know, but it says clearly three weeks.
That bridge HAS to be rebuilt from scratch, no question about it.

By the way, this one cracked me up:

Sabotage: more than 100 bolts removed from railway tracks in southern Chile.

EFE denuncia que desconocidos soltaron pernos de la línea férrea en Ercilla

La Empresa de Ferrocarriles del Estado (EFE) denunció a Carabineros que desconocidos soltaron 123 pernos de anclaje de la línea férrea, específicamente en el cruce Chamichaco.

La situación motivó un procedimiento policial que detectó rayados con pintura fresca y la consigna “Resistencia mapuche Malleco” en la zona, por lo que se alertó a unidades especializadas. En otro de ellos se lee “Rechazo a la mesa de diálogo”.

EL intendente de La Araucanía, Andrés Jouannet, en un inicio le restó gravedad a la situación, aduciendo que “no es primera vez que se sueltan pernos, hasta se roban durmientes”. ( las patitas del .... )

Por ello, dijo, existe un equipo de inspección permanente para la protección del sistema ferroviario. Luego, reconoció como grave que haya gente que realice este tipo de actos.

El tránsito de trenes de carga se mantiene suspendido desde el pasado jueves tras la caída del puente ferroviario en Pitrufquén, por lo que no hubo bienes ni personas afectadas por el hecho.

El Gobierno descartó intencionalidad en el colapso del puente, por lo que atribuyó su colapso a fatiga de material.





Este incidente es claramente sabotaje por parte de grupos de naturaleza SUBVERSIVA. Y con esto -en lo personal- quedan dudas mas que suficientes para elucubrar que lo del puente puede sustentarse tambien dentro de este carril. Que las autoridades no quieran reconocer esto por afinidad o simpatía con la logica setentera, es "harina de otro costal"

Chile mulls new Santiago - Valparaíso line
Tuesday, September 20, 2016



A study commissioned by Chilean State Railways (EFE) into the construction of a new rail link between Santiago and Valparaíso has concluded that one of the options under consideration would meet government investment criteria

In Chile, rail is at a disadvantage for travel between Santiago and both of the country´s next two largest urban conurbations - Valparaíso/Viña del Mar and Concepción/Talcahuano - because the rail distances involved are much greater than those by road

South America by rail

Hi Friends

I am railroad fan and retired sailor from Poland. I enjoyed some short rail trips in Ecuador, Brazil and Chile before, when sailed on board various merchant ships. Now I have enough time (and saved some money for it) to look closer at the railways on your continent. Nowadays the railway network in South America is like a patchwork and to set up a clever plan of my trip I need a truthful info about the railroads which are still in operation. May you advise me active passenger and cargo railroads and it’s operators in Chile? I will be very grateful for your help.

Best Regards & All the Best in the New Year

It is important remark that the Chilean government decided some days ago that the tunnel is not important y end with the project. The Argentinian government endorses that decision.

I imagine it is a nice idea, with quicker journey times and needing less powerful trains to cross the mountains, but the cost would be so high. Switzerlad is a rich country and it still has taken decades to build these new tunnels at multi billions in cost.

For the amount of money needed you could build several metro lines and upgrade hundreds of km of conventional route to higher speeds and electrify them.
