Description

The view from the top of a coal train heading for Rio Gallegos in Patagonia, Argentina as it pases a train of empty wagons heading for the mine at Rio Turbio. The coal trains of the RFIRT (Ramal Ferroviario Industrial Rio Turbio) are hauled by 2-10-2 steam locomotives built by Mitsubishi of Japan. The RFIRT was constructed in 1951 to transport coal from the mine at Rio Turbio to Rio Gallegos on the Atlantic coast, and is the southernmost railway in the world. Photographed by John Click.
