El tren de Lima a La Oroya : construcción e idea de progreso en el proyecto ferroviario transandino del ingeniero polaco Ernesto Malinowski (1818-1898)

Abstract : At the time of political Civilisme, the development of the Peruvian railways in an unknown ladder to marks a decisive stage of the conquest of the space which Light had been only sketching. Th e engineer characteristic artist of classical art succeeds at the end of the XIXth century technologist‘s face able of controlling complex and especially heterogeneous data. More precisely, Ernest Malinowski (1818-1899) becomes, with other technicians, the key of arch of the rail strategy of the Republic of Peru by taking the post of chief architect of an andean territory conceived in terms of fl ux and networks, a territory of agility and exchanges to which are going to compete, in the name of the modernity, the diff erent developments of which she sees herself charged. Th e action of the Polish engineer, formed in the School of Bridges and put on by Paris, practices progressively as part of a cogitation which must lead to a system of mixed economy which will relieve fi nances of public potency while favouring industrial and commercial development. Th e space and fl uvial elements are irrefutably the spindle of andean plan and the guiding plans of use and working of soil on a national scale are the foundation. To conceive the central line of andean railway, Malinowski wants to control all questions which settle, of the choice of the line in that of the best engine in the counting of ballasts and rubbles by way of the mining development.
