I think these clips are from the 1975 film Actas de Marusia, about a Chilean miners revolt in 1907. The film was released in the the US as "Letters from Marusia" and nominated for an academy award.

I'm trying to download a copy to confirm this and see if there is any more shots of the railroad.

These locos apparently still exist and were offered for sale (with the rest of the railroad and the mine) a few years ago - anyone fancy a preservation project ?
