Thanks to urbanbiobio Youtube channel, there are cab videos in normal speed for two services: Metro Valparaiso service or Merval service (From Puerto Station in Valparaiso to Limache station in Limache city) and Metrotren Alameda - Nos service in Santiago de Chile (there are subtitles to station names and another stuff like bridges or tunnels for example). Spanish words used in videos: - Estación: Station - Puente: Bridge - Túnel: tunnel Wikipedia articles for reading: Metro Valparaiso (In english) Metrotren Nos (In spanish) Enjoy the ride.
Some pictures of Santiago Metro trains in 2006, all of these trains were built by Alstom except the NS-88 build by Concarril (today Bombardier) in Mexico NS-74 (build during 1973, 1975 and 1981) NS-74 Interior NS-88 (the only one, built during 1987 in replace of one NS-74 train targeted in a terrorist attack during the 80's) Train's nickname 'El Mexicano' (The Mexican)
I have a few pics of trains in my country, all of them taken in 2006. The majority of this trains have the origins in Spain (UT-440R, UTS-444 and TLD-593) and one japanese train, the AEZ, now enjoy this pictures :) UT-440R used in Metrotren services (Alameda - Rancagua - San Fernando) UTS-444 used in limited express services called Terrasur (Alameda - Rancagua - Talca - Chillán) TLD-593 (diesel train) used in 2006 in regional services from city of Victoria to Temuco and Puerto Montt in the south zone of Chile, now this trains are used in local services from Victoria to Temuco. And one of the japanese trains most iconics for me, the AEZ, in 2006 was used in long distance services from Alameda to Concepción and Talcahuano, now this train is not used more and this service disappeared. Alameda Station is the official name corresponding to train station in Santiago de Chile. Another common name is Estación Central (Central Station)
