"The Morococha district is situated in the Andes of Central Peru, Department of Junin, four miles east of the crest of the Western Cordillera, which there forms the Continental Divide. The town of Morococha is at an elevation of 14,800 feet and is connected by rail with Callao, the port of Lima, ninety miles to the west, and with La Oroya, the smelting center, thirteen miles to the east. The Peruvian Central Railway ascends from Lima along the valley of the Rio Rimac to Ticlio (15,665 feet) where it tunnels through the Divide and descends the Yauli Valley to La Oroya. From Ticlio, a branch line, crossing the Divide at La Cima (15,800 feet), enters Morococha from the west and continues through it to join the main line again at Cut-Off, six miles to the southeast"--Location, page 2.
