Remarks & Notes 
Very sad, one of the most spectacular railroads worldwide, the 1 meter gauge line Chañaral - Llanta - Potrerillos, is shut down since march 2015, largely destroyed between Llanta and Chañaral by floods. If you search for the route on Google Earth today, you will only find sad remains, large sections have been buried, washed away, built over by new roads, and so on. In may 2012, EMG GR12 # 93 (built in 1965 for the Ferrocarril de Potrerillos/Codelco) and # 412 (built by EMD in 1962 for the EFE) of Ferronor, the numbers very hardly recognizable because of the dirt, stoped for some minutes in Montandon. They are pulling a train with copper concentrates from the loading site above Llanta up to the smelter in Potrerillos. Hardly recognizable in the steep valley slope is the line going up to Potrerillos after a 180 degree turn in the valley behind Montandon.
