Valparaiso, Chile

From nycsubway.org

Overview

Valparaiso, on the Pacific Ocean coast, is the port of the Central Region of Chile. It has a population of 900,000 inhabitants in conurbation with Viña del Mar. Santiago is 110 Km (68.4 Miles) to the south. The Metroval line runs parallel to the Pacific shore from the port of Valparaiso until Viña del Mar where it turns to the East to pass beneath the central part of Viña del Mar, and emerges to the east of this area to continue to the suburban town of Limache.

The Metroval system cannot be classified like a subway system due the existence of level crossings, and the frequency between trains at 6 minutes in peak hours and 15 minutes in off-peak hours. It should be considered a modern suburban rail. There is only one line with a length of 43 Km (26.7 Miles), with 20 stations, 4 are underground in Viña del Mar, and 16 at grade. In fact, this line is the result of the modernization of a former suburban rail line, building an underground stretch in Viña del Mar and modernizing some stations. Its owner (Metro regional de Valparaiso S.A.) is a filial of EFE (Empresa Ferroviaria del Estado) the Government of Chile Railroad company.
