I like very much this photo. It has quelquechose of unreal, ghostly. That this train at the end of these interrupted rails makes. What happened? The end of a world? Happy new Year

I have read that after the war with Chile and the crisis of the mines those were not economically interesting for Bolivia anymore.

Eduardo Manchon on January 7, 2009

Mi familia tenia minas y usabamos los trenes para viajar de Pulacayo,Poopo, etc, tenian camarote y viajar de Bolivia a la Argentina era genial. my family had mines and we used this trains not only to transport the minerals but to travel from our mines to the cities, the best trip was from Bolivia to Argentina with sleepers coaches, dining, wery elegant. bolivia sold the railways to Chile and they destroyed the company. I have photos from that time when I was a little girl and Bolivia was enjoying the richest mines and prosperity.

End of the line for this one i guess. Unusual Image that one does not see too often. I certainly never have. That is what makes it so interesting to me. The angle and composition is good too. Well done! Ray
