Abstract

MARTINIC B., Mateo. FERROCARRILES EN LA ZONA AUSTRAL DE CHILE, 1869-1973. Historia (Santiago) [online]. 2005, vol.38, n.2, pp.367-395. ISSN 0717-7194.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-71942005000200005.

In spite of the important development in Chilean Patagonia between circa 1870 an 1973, particulary in the old Magellan Territory, an almost surprising fact was that in between many incorporated industrial technology the railroad, a paradigm of modernity, had a scarce representation. In this paper, a complete review about railroads settled and exploted in southernmost Chile is done and a explanation of its modest expression and some interesting projects that necer became materialized which explains the emptiness in the historical information on the subject

Keywords : Transport; railroad; Chilean Patagonia; industrial technology.
