Remarks & Notes 
The famous "Tren a las Nubes" backs over the country's highest rail bridge, the La Polvorilla viaduct, which stands at 4,220 meters (13,845 feet) above sea level. This train runs from the city of San Antonio de los Cobres to this bridge 3 days a week on the C14 branch of the former General Belgrano railroad. This line is used by freight trains that run to the border with Chile.
