Remarks & Notes 
A hero

Conquering the Andes every day, he is very focused on his work. The dangers of driving a train in high mountains, on a vertiginous right of way with the most severe grades are present in his mind all the time. Paying attention to the dangers is a second nature. He is also an artist about negotiating the numerous switchbacks. Pushing back his heavy freight train on a 4.3% grade is certainly not a piece of cake, but he is so skilled at that that he could almost do it blindfolded. The FCCA maquinista is a true hero.
