Remarks & Notes 
E-32 electric locomotive built in Italy by Breda Marelli and Gruppo Aziende Italiane consortium, with FEPASA X-10 Talca - Santiago, crosses the Rio Claro viaduct between Camarico and Itahue, in Maule district. E-3223 is a electric locomotive of Italian origin, built in 1960 in Milan, Italy, especially for the railroads of Chile. They were 34 locomotives in operation in the early 1960s for State Railroads "FFCC del E". Wonderful machines of 3600 HP. He became known both in Chile and abroad as the "Sophia Loren", for its beautiful curves and Italian origin. Currently there are only three locomotives operational and still survive the lack of spare parts: Two operated by FEPASA for freight - cargo transport (E-3208 and E-3227), and E-3209 which is the only under operational conditions has state rail company ("EFE" - Empresa de Ferrocarriles del Estado) and used for special services. The locomotive of the photo (E-3223) is currently out of service, deregistered.
