Pulacayo. The old silver mine yard contains an assortment of old locomotives and rolling stock belonging to the mining company which also owned the connecting line to the main line at Uyuni. When the FC Antofagasta & Bolivia was converted to 3 ft. gauge the mine branch retained its 2ft. 6 in. gauge. With assistance from Walker & Binns' book 'Railways of Bolivia' the following locomotives were identified:

Rogers 2-8-0 tender loco; Works No.5544, Running no.66; built in 1900 for use on 2'6" gauge Pulacayo line. BOLIVIA. At Pulacayo the old silver mine has a display of rolling stock. No. 66, 2-8-0 Rogers 5544/1900 is believed to be ex FCAB.
