Rust and desolation

Being a train buff like me, it'll make you really sad to visit an abandoned train cemetery like the one just outside Uyuni, but this place has a beauty and special magnetism, because the desolation isn't only found in these rusty abandoned machines that aren't able to function to carry passengers or freight anymore, but they're also there in a never ending graveyard where it seems like a road to the end of the world.

A place that gives for entretencin and imagination.

The train cemetery was an instance that despite how beautiful; the infrastructure that these trains gave the landscape was very entertaining as it looked to climb, play, take pictures and secondly imagine the operation of these trains as they arrived ah, where they come from and why they were abandoned.

Un lugar que da para la entretención e imaginación .

El cementerio de trenes fue una instancia que a pesar de lo bonita; por la infraestructura que estos trenes le daban al paisaje, fue muy entretenida ya que daba para escalar, jugar, sacarse fotos y por otro lado imaginarse el funcionamiento de estos trenes, como llegaron ahí, de donde provienen y por que fueron abandonados.

A few minutes from the city center of Uyuni is the famous cemetery where trains slowly rusting carcasses of ancient paths of Bolivian iron. Centrally located at the crossroads of the East-West rail lines that went to Chile and north-south between La Paz and Argentina, Uyuni has acted as the dumping ground for old locomotives and other cars for which there was no other place for storage. Today, you can enter freely and have fun making layouts original scenes photos!

A quelques minutes du centre ville de Uyuni se situe le fameux cimetière de trains où rouillent doucement les carcasses des anciens chemins de fer boliviens.
De situation centrale, à la croisée des chemins entre les lignes ferroviaires Est-Ouest qui partaient vers le Chili, et Nord-Sud entre la Paz et l'Argentine, Uyuni a donc fait office de dépotoir pour ces anciennes locomotives et autres wagons pour lequel il n'existait pas d'autre lieu de stockage.
Aujourd'hui, on peut y entrer librement et s'amuser à faire des mises en scènes originales pour des photos !

Discovery

Skeletons of locomotives and wagons scattered jumble of rusted irons indifference is how we can summarize the train cemetery a few kilometers from Uyuni. In a landscape of another time with an old railway line that was unique in Bolivia, the scenery is amazing. Reliant once Uyuni in Antofagasta (Chile) for trade in metals, losing the war against Chile in ruined forever the path of Bolivian iron and the cemetery is the best example

Découverte

Squelettes de locomotives et de wagons éparpillés, fouillis de fers rouillés dans l'indifférence voilà comment peut on résumer le cimetière des trains à quelques kilomètres d'Uyuni. Dans un paysage d'un autre temps avec une ancienne ligne de chemin de fer qui était l'unique en Bolivie, le décor est incroyable. Reliant autrefois Uyuni à Antofagasta (Chili) pour le commerce des métaux, la perte de la guerre face au Chili à ruiné à jamais la chemin de fer bolivien et le cimetière en est le plus bel exemple

Amid the locomotives

At the exit of the town of Yuni, 30 minutes walking along the railroad tracks, you will arrive at the train cemetery. (The ride could be fun if there was not so much garbage on our way). The first carcasses are really old and leave room for a lot of imagination but in the past, there are beautiful locomotives that make you want to climb on board. It is a true playground for young and old but beware still not get hurt on the rusty iron.

Au milieu des locomotives

A la sortie de la ville de Yuni, en marchant 30 min le long des voies du chemin de fer, vous arriverez au cimetière de train. (La balade pourrait être plaisant s'il n'y avait pas autant de déchets sur notre passage). Les premières carcasses sont vraiment anciennes et laissent place à beaucoup d'imagination mais dans les dernières, on retrouve de belles locomotives qui donnent envie de grimper à bord. C'est un vrai de terrain de jeux pour petits et grands mais attention tout de même à ne pas se blesser sur le fer rouillé.

The cemetery of trains

First bus stop at the 3-day tour in the Salar de Uyuni and South Lipez: the train cemetery. It is almost on the set of the opening sequence of the film "Super 8" locomotives everywhere, rusted, ruined, and swings of fortune to capture the place of film in a fun way. All this just to the edge of town.

Le cimetière des trains

Premier stop du bus lors du tour de 3 jours dans le salar d'Uyuni et le sud Lipez : le cimetière des trains. On se croirait presque sur le plateau de tournage de la séquence d'ouverture du film "Super 8" ; des locomotives partout, rouillées, en ruine, et des balançoires de fortune pour immortaliser le lieu sur pellicule de façon ludique. Tout ça à peine à la sortie de la ville.

Irn not anywhere

The last afternoon sun brings out the most beautiful colors to rust once were locomotives and wagons for transportation of ore. What sign of progress was yesterday, today is nothing more than a graveyard of forgotten trains, essential to round off the visit to the nearby Salar de Uyuni appointment. Abandonment and overwhelms the phrase resonates most famous locomotive on the site: "As is life".

Ya no irán a ninguna parte

El último sol de la tarde saca los más bellos colores a la herrumbre que en otro tiempo fueron locomotoras y vagones para transporte de mineral.

Lo que ayer era signo de progreso, hoy no es más que un cementerio de trenes olvidados, cita imprescindible para redondear la visita al cercano Salar de Uyuni. Sobrecoge el abandono y resuena la frase sobre la locomotora más famosa del lugar: "Así es la vida".

Train cemetery uyuni

A few kilometers from Uyuni train graveyard decadent beauty that had rarely been seen before is. S if not be the environment, a desert plateau in altitude or abandoned wagons and locomotives years ago but l take a walk through is like being in a place touched by magic.

Cementerio de trenes de uyuni

A pocos kilómetros de Uyuni se halla un cementerio de trenes de una belleza decadente que rara vez había visto antes. No sé si será el entorno, un desierto en la altitud del altiplano, o bien los vagones y locomotoras abandonados hace años pero darse un paseo por él es como estar en un lugar tocado por la magia.

Bolivian friends confess I do not understand how it is that tourists find charm in this old Victorian train cemetery in a forgotten corner of this town Uyuni, the edge of the desert in Bolivia. And there is not much else to do, what to see?. Or you venture to the endless desert road or follow the train tracks until they fall apart, rusted skeletons unfold between trash and graffiti. The deterioration of these gems leave the tourist museum Bewitched - Local and confused more than anything.

Mis amigos bolivianos me confiesan no entienden como es que los turistas encuentran encanto en este antiguo cementerio de trenes victorianos en un rincón olvidado de este pueblo Uyuni, al borde del desierto en Bolivia.
Y tampoco hay mucho mas que hacer, ¿qué ver?. O uno se aventura al infinito desierto o sigue camino por las vías de tren hasta que se deshacen, se desenvuelven en esqueletos oxidados entre basura y graffiti. El deterioro de estas gemas de museo dejan al turista hechizado – y al local mas que nada confundido.

The place left me feeling a cemetery where bodies were iscepultos. The visit is short, just to be dazzled. I was lucky to arrive at dusk, a day of heavy rain. I walked a little between these bodies, photographing (and escaping from my companions gringos, who understood nothing). The result you can see in ' http://www.pbase.com/rilomu/insepultos' hope you like.

El lugar me dejó la sensación de un cementerio donde los cuerpos estaban iscepultos. La visita es breve, justo para deslumbrarse. Tuve la suerte de llegar al atardecer, un día de mucha lluvia. Caminé un poco entre esos cuerpos, fotografiándolos (y escapando de mis acompañantes gringos, que nada entendían). El resultado lo puedes ver en ' http://www.pbase.com/rilomu/insepultos' Ojalá te gusten.

Uyuni was in his time a large exchanger trains, due to its location on the border between Chile and Bolivia, and the proximity of the mines of Potosí. But with the crisis ore and political tensions with Chile, Bolivia claims that access to the Pacific Ocean, Uyuni was found abandoned, until the close of the salt desert furnish to date for the tourists. Meanwhile, dozens of trains were abandoned there in the desert, 3600m altitude. And they managed to convert it into a tourist attraction! But what is really impressive, coming 3 days excursion in the Salar, crossing as many trains, huge, rusty and tired in the middle of nowhere. I think it is actually near the village of Uyuni, but also as we had, I do not know how to get there without a guide. The tour included the salar, lagoons, geysers, another village of the salar, and the end, the train cemetery. This is one of the few times I took an organized tour, but I think this is really the best option, because the area is desert, and expensive personal organization.

Uyuni était en son temps un échangeur de trains important, de part son emplacement à la frontière entre le Chili et la Bolivie, et la proximité des mines de Potosí. Mais avec la crise du minerai et les tensions politiques avec le Chili, à qui la Bolivie réclame un accès à l´océan pacifique, Uyuní s´est trouvée à l´abandon, jusqu´à ce que la proximité du désert de sel le remette au goût du jour pour les touristes.

Entre temps, des dizaines de trains ont été abandonnés là, dans le désert, à 3600m d´altitude. Et ils ont réussi à le convertir en attraction touristique ! Mais c´est vraiment impressionnant, en sortant de 3 jours d´excursion dans le salar, de croiser autant de trains, énormes, rouillés et fatigués, au milieu de nulle part.

Je crois que c´est en fait proche du village d´Uyuni, mais comme on venait d´ailleurs, je ne sais pas trop comment y aller sans guide. Le tour comprenait le salar, les lagunes, les geysers, un autre village du salar, et le final, le cimetière des trains.

C´est l´une des rares fois que je prenais un tour organisé, mais je pense que c´est vraiment la meilleure option, car la zone est désertique, et l´organisation personnelle coûteuse.

It is a steam locomotive abandoned. The guide told us it was imported in 1890, and transported to Chile and Argentina minerals and gold. Now it only remains in the desert carrying rusty. We took pictures. I recommend during your visit to Uyuni.

Il s’agit d’une locomotive à vapeur abandonnée. Le guide nous a raconté qu’elle a été importée en 1890, et transportait au Chili et en Argentine des minéraux et de l’or. Maintenant, il ne reste plus dans le désert que des ferrailles rouillées. Nous avons pris de photos. Je vous le recommande lors de votre passage à Uyuni.
