Remarks & Notes 
There are many tunnels on the Lima - La Oroya line, but they are not very long. Surprisinly, the longest one is not the summit (Galera) tunnel (only 1177m / 3863 ft). It is the Balta tunnel with 1375m (4511 ft). It contains a horseshoe curve, thus avoiding one switchback, which is the only exception to the rule on the line.
