This Weeks's Photo Send photos to photos@trainnews.org


The port of Santa Marta, Colombia has 3-foot gauge tracks on the docks used by cruise ships, but the real action is about 15 miles south where a double track 3-foot gauge line known as FENOCO brings over 80 million tons of coal per year from inland mines to a special coal port for transfer to ships. This is by far the highest tonnage in the world for a railroad with a gauge of less than one meter. Here a southbound train of empties passes the station at Cienega at about 50 mph. on February 10, 2018.
