The train departs the Chilca station in Huancayo every day at 6:30am and arrives at Huancavelica at noon.


The train leaves Huancavelica at 2:00 pm and arrives back in Chilca at 7:30 pm.


Due to track maintenance there is no service on Wednesdays.


However, it is only opperating with 4 passenger and 1 cargo cars, for the time being, and can only carry a maximum of 370 passengers, reported El Comercio.


Tickets cost 9 soles for ‘first class’ and 13 for the buffet car.


A second train is being repaired, and is schedueled to being opperating on the same route in about a month.
