Chile

Santiago

From Santiago and other points, eight passenger services serve central Chile. These include a pair of "Tren Nocturnos" between the capital and Concepcion and Temuco.

Ecuador

Quito

Largely destroyed by El Nỉos effects in the late 20c, remaining segments of the country's national passenger service are chiefly devoted to tourism. The Quito-Latacunga route links the capital with Cotopaxi National Park. The section linking Riobamba and Alaus̀ to Sibambeincludes the famous switchback at Nariz del Diablo.

Mexico

Mexico City

Passenger services of Mexico's national railroad have dwindled to a pair of "tourist lines" -- the first, the Chihuahua-Pacific Railroad (aka Chepe) shares its Copper Canyon route with the pricier and more extravagant Southern Orient Express -- the second, the Tequila Express, boards guests at Guadalajara for a jolly day of gluttony.

Panama

Los Rios

The "interoceanic railway" traces its pre-canal roots back a century-and-a-half. Today's 21st century railway stretches 47 mi/75 km, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, providing a transcontinental crossing in a bit more than an hour.

Peru

Poroy and Cusco

Explorando la Tierra de los Incas... Exploring the land of the Incas, PeruRail transports visitors between several of the country's most renowned destinations. Services include frequent connections between Poroy and Machu Picchu; thrice-weekly "Andean Explorer" trains connect Cusco with Lake Titicaca, some 20 hours to the south.
