Remarks & Notes 
Shunting cars at the World's highest tunnel

At a height of 4781 m asl (15686 ft), the FCCA 1008 shunts cars on the Galera tracks by entering and exiting the summit tunnel. This work is hard for the staff and the locomotive as well. The amount of shunting at this small yard has increased since China created nearby Chinalco, a major mining project. See here: http://www.chinalco.com.pe/en/about_us
