Remarks & Notes 
The Montandón horseshoe

Ferronor 82 energetically negotiates the Montandón horseshoe curve at sunset. This curve immediately follows the Montandón station that marks the beginning of the hard grade climbing to Potrerillos (have a look at the Google Maps link here below, the view is very explicit). The train slowly entered the station, then suddenly got a noisy running start and quickly got momentum. The sound was great!

Coordinates of the photographer: South 26d 23m 45.02s - West 69d 24m 55.00s – 2393 m / 7851 ft Click here to see this location on Google Maps.
