Remarks & Notes 

Desemparados station used to be the main passenger depot in Lima. It is located in the historic centre of Lima, next to the Presidential Palace and adjacent to the “Rio Rimac” river. It is not any more a station. There is only one track, which is the main FCCA line Callao – Oroya. After the authorities refused that it is used by FCCA S.A. as their headquarter offices, it was transformed into a library. Fortunately, the building and the surroundings are kept in good condition … even though “desemparado” means abandoned.
