Tren to the Clouds

Departure from Salta railway station, passing by Alvarado, Rosario de Lerma, Campo Quijano, Quebrada del Toro, Alisal, Puerta de Tastil, Meseta, Diego de Almagro, Cachinal and San Antonio de los Cobres stations. The train, which has ten cars, is hauled by a diesel locomotive and a car equipped with an infirmary, information transfer central cabin, a restaurant car, a bar car and seven cars with first class seats, with a capacity for 520 passengers. In order to go up, it zigzags twice, back and forth, continuously rising in the areas known as El Alisal and Chorrillos. It “loops” twice, once in the open sky, with the tracks within a radius of 130 metres and ramping up two percent, it moves forward a few hundreds of metres until setting the train on a second parallel track, receding 750 metres along it and then it moves forward again. As the hillside ended there, the engineer Maury drilled a curved and blind 88-metre tunnel, under which one end of the train goes, then it switches to a third parallel track and moves forward once more, going up from two to three percent. It passes by El Alisal again, but this time 54 metres up. Besides, the train "flies" over 13 viaducts and iron bridges without railings. The tour lasts fifteen hours and reaches its climax on La Polvorilla viaduct, located 4,200 metres above sea level.
