Train trip with a view to devils nose! Ecuador 1999

One of the Ecuador's main attractions is a train trip from Riobamba to Alausi.

This trip goes via Devils nose where the train tracks zigzag and the train has to reverse while going down the steep hills. 

The views are great and the best seats are on the top of the train.

 

Trip started early in the morning while it was still dark and very cold due the high altitude.

 

On the top of the world

Slight technical problem. The train dropped from the tracks at Devils nose. It took just and half on hour for the staff to get the train back to tracks.

 

Great and fun experience
