Appendix 1

Network maps 1958 and 1930

At long last, in early 2018, we have embarked on the construction of this chapter! This has been planned for ten years or so, but work was diverted into the writing of our book on these railways, and then into other things. Please be patient, as the pages are currently incomplete. Any additional material will be much appreciated. You may contact the authors via the e-mail addresses given on the home page.

The diagrammatic map below shows the EFE network as it was in 1958. Obviously the metre gauge Red Norte is at the top of the map sheet, with the largely broad gauge Red Sur starting just before halfway down the page. The area that this website covers is largely in the bottom third of the page. Note that this is a very large image and may take some time to download.

The 60cm gauge lines from Linares and Chillán are missing from this diagram. The branch from Talca to San Clemente and Perquin is shown as being broad gauge, which is unexpected as it was built to metre gauge.

Scroll further down to see a modern map illustrating the network as it was in 1930.

The following map was found on the internet. The author is unknown. We will be happy to acknowledge him or her if someone can identify the person responsible. The map is based upon a 1930 original, though that was in black and white rather than colour. This version does ,however, contain one mistake in that Antofagasta is labelled as Tocopilla.
