    Train between Rancagua and Santiago suspends operations due to downed cables in the railway power grid

    May 9, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      During Monday morning, the train between Rancagua and Santiago announced the complete suspension of its services, after they reported the fall of cables on the railway electrical network.

      The information was released by the Empresa de los Ferrocarriles del Estado , through its Twitter account, who called users to "consider this information when planning their trips", and to opt for alternative transportation routes.

      At 8.20 a.m. they informed that it was possible to energize the Estación Central - Buin section, therefore, the train service between those stations was reestablished. The next departures are as follows:

      • From Estación Central: 8.25 a.m.
      • From Buin: 09.00 hrs.

      Initially through the social network they had indicated that the emergency was due to the "fall of a high voltage tower in the Paine sector", however, this message was deleted, and later they informed that "due to the fall of cables on the railway electrical network, our service is totally suspended".

      At the moment the service is suspended in both directions.

      According to Captain José Manuel Hernández, Commissioner of the 64th Police Station of Paine, the fall of the cables occurred around 1.30 a.m.

      "The great majority of people are beginning to take public transportation to be able to go to work in the town of Santiago. EFE personnel have just informed me that it will take approximately two hours to restore the service", he added.

      EFE informed that they have arranged buses for people to travel from Rancagua to Estación Central at two times: at 9:00 and 10:00.
