Remarks & Notes 
A short upgrade train is approaching Casapalca. It has only 4 cars. This is a section of a train that was too heavy for climbing in one piece. Usually, upgrade trains are empty and it is trains going down to Lima that are loaded with mining products. But when loaded cars must be sent upward, carrying supplies or equipment for the mines, it is an entirely different story. The grades may be as high as 4.7% on some short sections, and the power output of the locomotive decreases with height where there is not enouh oxygen in the air.
