Transap Chile action
Author: masterphots

On Feb 2, 2022 I shot a couple of Transap trains on a 15 mile stretch of track in southern Chile.  Frequencies are few so if you find a train follow it.   The cars are hauling cellulose.

1.  3003E in the hole at Santa Fe,  Chile waiting for a meet with 3004W.  The unit is an SD30M-3 built by MPI Mexico from an SP GP40-2,  number unknown.
2.  3004W at Milantu, Chile after meeting 3003E above.  This one was also built from an unknown SP GP40-2.
3.  3004W nearing Laja, Chile.   After about eight years,  this photo is again possible, as they repainted the bridge and removed all the trees that were blocking a view of the bridge.

Beautifull location. The grass is very high, like is usual in Brazil too.
