Peru: Train service restored on Machu Picchu-Hydroelectric Plant route

PeruRail, the railway operator offering services to Machu Picchu on Wednesday confirmed that the train service on the route Hydroelectric Plant-Machu Picchu Town has been restored after a collapse on the 115-kilometer stretch caused by the flooding of Mandor River.

Normal timetables of local and tourist train services —for users taking the alternative route to Machu Picchu Town— resumed today after four days.

The so-called Hydroelectric Plant zone is located near the border with Santa Teresa district (La Convencion province).

The reestablishment of railway operations on this route is due to a notice —made by Peruvian rail firm Ferrocarril Transandino, or Fetransa, the concession company operating the rail line— that authorizes the movement of trains.

Likewise, PeruRail reported that all train services on the Ollantaytambo-Machu Picchu-Ollantaytambo route run normally and according to regular itineraries.
