Remarks & Notes 
Atacama transportation

This image well represents the current status of transportation in the Atacama Desert of north Chile and South Peru. Passenger services are entirely in the hands of bus companies. Where railroad lines exist and are in service, the railways are exclusively freight. Some of them, like this one, serve just one customer that is their own parent company: these railroads are industrial railroads and they belong to mining corporations. This the case of the Southern Peru Copper Corporation. This is also the case of the Tocopilla al Toco (FCTT) in Chile.
