The National Pisco To YCA Railway Company owned and operated a railway in the mining region next to the pacific coast.

Authenticity unconditionally guaranteed. offer with confidence!

Rail transport in Peru has never consisted of a true network, primarily comprising separate lines running inland from the coast.

Many of the lines owe their origins to contracts granted to United States entrepreneurs Henry Meiggs and W. R. Grace and Company but the mountainous nature of Peru made expansion slow and much of the surviving mileage is of twentieth-century origin. It was also challenging to operate, especially in the age of the steam locomotive.

In the latter part of the 1880s, the principal public railways, the Central and Southern, with others, passed to the control of the Peruvian Corporation, registered in London and controlled by Americans Michael and William R. Grace. In 1972 they were nationalized as Empresa Nacional de Ferrocarriles del Perú (ENAFER), but this survived as an operator only until 1999 when most surviving lines were privatized. Regular passenger traffic now operates over only a small proportion of the mileage.

The Tacna-Arica line crosses the boundary with Chile (but is not directly connected with the rest of that country’s lines) and the Southern Railway provides connection with Bolivia by ship across Lake Titicaca.
