Trolleybuses cross the Andes
filed on: 07.01.2009 (7th Jan 2009)
A bit off-topic, but quite spectacular: Imagine trolleybuses winding their way through spectacular terrain high up in the Andes (well, unfortunately, not under their own power). The explanation: The Argentine city of Mendoza has recently taken delivery of second hand "Flyer" trolleybuses from Vancouver and the final leg of their transfer took them over the Andes from Chile into Argentina. To find out more, check this blog on the trolleybuses of Mendoza: www. trolebusesmendocinos. blogspot. com (in Spanish).
Thanks to the Trolleybus Yahoogroup for finding this gem.
