Im in Cusco right now and am heading to Lima. I´ve traveled by bus on the Arequipa route, so I´m thinking of another way to go. I read in my guide book that there is a train line that goes to Lima via Huancayo. Does anyone know if that´s true? Can´t find any info on the internet about it. If y know about it or have taken it, please send details. I know I could fly pretty easily but it seems like a train would be a nice way to see the Central Sierras.

You might check the Peru getting around section here on TP. There are trains between Lima and Huancayo, and Cuzco and a few other places. But not from Cuzco to Lima, unless things have majorly changed by now..;)

No train from Lima to Cuzco. As utrecht said to Huancay yes. Than take a bus from huancayo to lima. Beautiful scenery, not touristic
