El Cementerio de Trenes

Jump to Comments

El Cementerio de Trenes. Photo by Carsten Drossel In my poking around the train-related parts of the Internets, I have encountered some starkly beautiful photography from El Cementerio de Trenes — the train cemetery — on the salt flats just outside Uyuni, in southwestern Bolivia. Beautiful in that, for some perverse reason, I find photos of rusting steam locomotives aesthetically pleasing. On Flickr, Carsten Drossel has photos here (also at right) and here; see also assobrocken’s photos from Uyuni, especially these ones: 1, 2, 3, 4. On Panoramio, see Eduardo Manchón’s photos from the Salar Uyuni. And there’s this black and white photo on TrekEarth. All great.

Finding text about the train is more difficult, however, especially in English. (For example, only the German and Turkish versions of Uyuni’s Wikipedia entries mention the cemetery; the rest merely note that Uyuni is a major railway hub.) So far, the only web page I’ve been able to track down is this Indymedia page, and it’s in Spanish, which I don’t exactly read at the moment. I’d love to find out more.
