High Velocity Express Diesel Railcar (shovel nose) nicknamed “The Arrow”, Chilean Railways

High Speed Express Diesel Railcar (shovel nose) nicknamed

Dicha denominación se originaba en sus unidades streamlined antecesoras, utilizadas primitivamente en Alemania, operadas allá como unidades de cercanía entre Berlín y Hamburgo.

Originalmente, estas veloces y aerodinámicas unidades a diésel, estaban conformadas de three coches –incluyendo los 2 coches extremos, con cabina–.
Su capacidad, period de 124 pasajeros cómodamente sentados y a una velocidad crucero de 130-140 Kph, velocidad bastante alta para los convoyes hasta en aquel tiempo vistos y operados en Chile.
Posteriormente, antes de su abandono, uno de los coches extremos, fue modificado quedando sólo como coche-cola, por ende… con escasas o casi nulas posibilidades de revertir el convoy completo, de modo ágil y rápido.

En Chile, sus pioneros servicios los hicieron en el corredor Santiago-Puerto Montt.

Un dato anecdótico, sabido por algunos, pero que nunca estará demás refrescarlo :
Todos los “Flechas”, unos cuantos Automotores del tipo “AM” y materiales para la electrificación de Santiago al Sur a principio de la década del ’50 , fueron cancelados por parte de Chile a Alemania… con lentejas, para alimentar a las tropas alemanas.
Un sistema de pago, diremos…algo curioso, poco recurring y… “pintoresco”.

Futuramente, más product e información inédita, sobre estas unidades diesel streamlined shovelnose.
