Train & Rail Journeys in Colombia

The railroad situation today in Colombia consist of plans under way to restore service on almost all lines, especially the line from Bogotá to the Atlantic. A Chinese consortium has applied for the right to built a “dry Panama canal” connecting the Atlantic with the Caribbean by container trains. As of now we can offer you to include a ride on the tourist train out of Bogotá in direction of the salt cathedral in Zipaquirá.

The railroad in Colombia was meant to connect the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic, but not primarily in order to connect the Oceans. But more as a result to connect the country with the outside world. The Rio Magdalena that goes out North into the Caribbean does not support bigger barges or ships. The tropical rains made it hard to maintain the roads and the three North-South running mountain ranges of the Andes made it very difficult for Colombians to communicate before the railroad was built.

Railroads carry higher loads at lower costs. Now plans are under way to restore service on almost all lines, especially the line from Bogotá to the Atlantic. A Chinese consortium has applied for the right to built a “dry Panama canal” connecting the Atlantic with the Caribbean by containers trains. As of now we can offer you to include a ride on tourist train out of Bogotá in direction of the salt cathedral in Zipaquirá.
