People come to Uyuni to see the salt flats, but all tours also stop by the train graveyard just outside of town. Being a fan of trains, I went to the graveyard on my own since I didn’t want to be rushed in such an amazing place.
Apparently, many years ago these trains were no longer needed, so they were just left to rust, until they became a tourist attraction.
Some cars have been dismantled and stripped of parts, whereas others are still largely intact.
The far side of the graveyard, where all the tour operators stop, is just locomotives.
It’s super cool, because you can see the genuine insides of these trains.
You can even climb inside and play conductor for the 20 minutes you’re there!
It seems like there’s also a real graveyard nearby.
Finally, I celebrated by having lunch on the tracks. I got really excited as I heard a train horn approaching, but was disappointed when the train actually turned in another direction and passed relatively far away.
