Appendix 6

Mainline stations 1, Victoria to Valdivia

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.

We have sought out from the web views of as many of the stations possible noted in the itinerary. Some are modern views, some are very old views.

This page covers the southern mainline in order from Victoria down to Valdivia. The following appendix page continues the journey to Puerto Montt, and then another page covers the various southern branches.

The building after doing-up in 2005 is still recognisable as the original. Note how the wooden supports for the canopy have been mounted in steel supports to keep them clear of the wet ground surface and thus reduce the possibility of rot.

This was another station that later received a reinforced concrete building to replace the original, probably as a result of earthquake damage.
