    Abstract

    Este trabajo analiza la construcción y el funcionamiento del Ferrocarril de Bolívar, que a pesar de su corta extensión dio lugar a procesos económicos que provocaron cambios profundos en el territorio del Bolívar Grande, pues contribuyó al fortalecimiento de una subregión pujante y vinculada al desarrollo económico de la última parte del siglo XIX. El análisis de los contratos para poner en marcha este ferrocarril muestra las debilidades del Estado colombiano frente a los inversionistas, que vieron en los ferrocarriles una oportunidad de especulación financiera.
