Some good photo opportunities and a fun place to have a bit of a wander and climb around the old trains. Even better if you have a tour guide that knows the history.

This is supposedly where “trains go to die”. There’s really not that many trains there, so I don’t know where the rest of them have gone... It’s alright for a few photos, but not worth spending more than an hour here.

Ok, was included in tour of the salt flats. Too busy, everywhere you look there are people taking photos and selfies. Would be nicer if we could have visited earlier or later (without crowds).

When going with a regular tour many jeeps stop at the same time. I had hope to shoot some nice pictures of the trains, as these are very great for photos, but on every wagon people climbed on them for selfies, which made it impossible...More

Not really special to visit, just a bunch of old train carriages. But all tours stop here, because this cemetary tells you something about the history of bolivia. The long single train rail that starts in uyuni and goes al the way to chili is...More

On our first day out of Uyuni, this was our first stop. The Actual Cemetery is just outside the town and a rather windswept place. The trains have been totally stripped over the years but if nothing else provide a good venue for the taking...More

As I originally said, it's the train museum I'm interested in, not the train graveyard which I've visited three times already. The train museum is behind the railway station and can be clearly seen on google earth. It was... More
