An Alco in Talca Chile
Author: erielackawanna

Arrived at first light at the station in Talca Chile to ride a passenger train and the first thing I see is an Alco sitting under the train shed. The guards weren't letting anyone one the platform yet, so I used my lack of Spanish to my advantage (you have to access the platform to get to the bathroom and I pointed that way). Of course, I was still on the wrong side of the light. When my friend crossed the tracks for the good light, I followed and got some decent shots. Of course he got away with it and I got told off, but I was told off in Spanish, so I really am not quite sure what was said. 

As it turned out this was the same unit I had shot in Santiago a few days earlier, but getting it under the train shed in Talca was a total coup!!!

One more just before I got told off. Normally I hate being told off, but this was worth it (and like I said, I honestly have no idea what the guard actually said to me).

I've really enjoyed your Chile postings. Love Alcos and that one under the train shed must have sounded especially good as the sound reverbereated off the walls.
