Train Graveyard – Uyuni

First stop on the tour of the Uyuni Salt Flats is usually this place, the Train Graveyard.
Construction on the network was started in the late 19th Century but abandoned before work was completed, leaving the train lines to fall into disrepair.

Technical and geographical difficulties, disputes with neighbouring countries over lost territory, and more recent Western interests have all taken their toll on Bolivia’s rundown railways. This wasteland, bereft of guards or fences is the cemetery where Bolivia’s once proud locomotives have found their final resting place.
