The railroad runs parallel to the highway for much of the length of Chile. Note that the train is powered by a cable suspended above the tracks. It would seem that the railroad would be an ideal transportation solution for a long, skinny country like Chile, but it is barely used (similar to the US). After the earthquake, the railroad was utilized to remove building debris.
