Hi, we are going to Galapagos and Machu Picchu in January. My travel agent just informed us that there is a luggage limit for our train ride from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu of 22 lbs. I will ask my agent of course but just want to check here too for real life experience.
Each member of our family of 4 has one medium rolling suit case and one carry on backpack. I have not weighed anything yet, but know that our suitcase plus one rolling carry-on alone are at least 10 lbs + 5 lbs already. My concern is my camera equipment (professional grade Canon 1D with long lenses and wide angle zooms) and computer would add 15-20 lbs or so. I am already at 35-40 lbs before clothing/shoes/etc.
So the question please for those who have taken this train:
1. Did they enforce this rule strictly? As in 100% strict?
2. Did they actually weigh the luggage and if you exceed you have to leave luggage at train station's locker, or something like that?
Thanks in advance.
