Trains were brought to Iquitos from Europe in 1905, by entrepreneur Mr. Julio Cesar Arana del Águila. The train system was made up of the Moronococha, Sachachorro, and Punchana locomotives, which pulled flatbed cars or boxes to transport the packages of import and export merchandise. The locomotive was also used on Sundays and holidays by the public, and its route was between the streets Omagua (today San Martín) and Jirón Lima (today Prospero).

Its construction began in 1908 and was inaugurated on June 10, 1912. It features an eclectic architectural style. Those responsible for its construction and beautification were the engineer Samuel Young and the Spanish builder José Atimira.
