Two oceans by railroad

Two oceans by railroad

I Panama er det varmt og det er høy luftfuktighet, ingen tvil om det. Guiden vår fortalte at den laveste temperaturen som noen gang er målt i Panama er +9 grader Celsius. Lokalbefolkningen lot ikke til å plages av drøye 30 grader, men vi holdt oss i skyggen.

Men over til gårsdagens program. Etter å ha seilt Panamakanalen med cruisebåten, var det tilbake med veterantog. Jernbanen ble åpnet i 1855 og lagt ned når Panama gjorde avtale om overtakelse av kanalen fra USA i 1978. Overtakelsen skjedde formelt i 1999 og da gjenåpnet Panama toglinjen igjen.
Panama Canal Railway

Toget passerer over en bro.

Vi ble busset fra Fuerte Amador til togstasjonen. Det ble også litt sightseeing i Panama City på veien.
Dette ble en helt annen opplevelse, et helt annet perspektiv. Toglinjen følger for en stor del kanalen, men ikke hele veien. Det ble en god del regnskog å se også, men det har vi jo sett masse av allerede.
Pål og Frode

To herrer om bord i toget.

Nydelige vogner med enkel servering. Litt venting på møtende trafikk, godstog med containere.
Vel framme i Colón var det over i busser som skulle ta oss til Gatun Locks og besøkssenteret der. På veien passerte vi den nye kanalen som snart er ferdig, mektig konstruksjon.
Ny sluse

Det nye sluseanlegget.

Fra besøkssenteret så vi store containerskip passere gjennom slusene, riktig så imponerende. Store skip ble om mulig enda større på så nært hold. Alle skip ble dratt/ledet gjennom slusene med «esler», dvs. lokomotiver i dag. Antallet «esler» per båt varierer mellom 4 og 8 alt etter størrelsen på båten. Cruiseskipet vårt brukte 4 «esler», mens det store containerskipet vi så bli dratt gjennom slusen trengte 8 «esler»; 2 av dem ser vi i aksjon på bildet!

Så var det retur med buss via Colón til Panama City.
