Remarks & Notes 
Crossing the Loa River canyon - 3/4

In the old days, during its first decades of existence, the Calama - Ollague - Bolivia line crossed the Loa River canyon with a high bridge. Today, the bridge is closed to trains and road vehicles. The line goes farther upstream to a place where the canyon is less deep, then goes down halfway to the bottom, crosses the canyon on a fill and climbs the other side of the canyon to get back to the flat altiplano. This picture shows the fill and the beginning of the grade on the San Pedro (east) side of the canyon with an empty ore train heading to the San Cristobal mine in Bolivia.
