RELENTLESS RAIL #26! Ferrocarril Central Andino from Chosica in the eastern suburbs of Lima (altitude 860 m and 54 km inland from the Pacific) to the continental divide, 170 km away at an altitude of 4,871 m. That computes to a 1 in 35.4 gradient (≈29‰). The route includes seven (7) switchbacks (zig-zags), countless tunnels and dramatic bridges. It passes through dramatic mountain scenery ranging from green and wooded to tundra-like conditions above the treeline. This very slow journey has been accelerated by a factor of ±4 for convenient viewing.
