The old Pichilemu's Branch Railway, abandoned for more than 25 years.

The Colchagua railway station across the tracks was completely destroyed during the mega 8.8 (Richter scale) earthquake on February 27, 2010.

This place is a silent witness that shows the decline of the railways in my country.



Antiguo ramal de Pichilemu, desde hace mas de 25 años abandonado.

Las bodegas de la estación se aprecian totalmente destruida después del terremoto del 27 de febrero del 2010, terremoto de una magnitud 8,8 grados Ritcher.

El recorrido que realizaba el tren traccionado con una máquina diesel, era un viaje precioso que realicé varias veces hasta la primera mitad de la década de los 80's. Sin embargo, el poco interés por preservar estas tradiciones, dejaron en el olvido y abandono este y muchos otros únicos lugares.
