Photographer Visited Bolivia’s Graveyard Of Trains

It’s a cemetery for trains, for locomotives (previously). And it’s so big that it looks as though all of the trains in South America were moved to Uyuni, Bolivia, to chug their last chug.

Filled with hollowed out bodies that have completely rusted over and other remains, the “Great Train Graveyard” can be found on the otherwise deserted outskirts of Uyuni, a small trading region high in the Andean plain.

Uyuni has long been known as an important transportation hub in South America and it connects several major cities. In the early 19th century, big plans were made to build an even bigger network of trains out of Uyuni, but the project was abandoned because of a combination of technical difficulties and tension with neighboring countries. The trains and other equipment were left to rust and fade out of memory.
