Train Cemetery has many trains exposed to the mean weather rusting and degenerating. These huge collections of train remnants used for main transportation during their time.

Well worth stopping for a photo shoot ( you dont have to be a train buff) Such an amazing sight 100s of rusty trains of all shapes and sizes some with graffiti ...

It was part of our tour to salt flats. We ve spend there 30 min jumping on trains like a kids:-) We did really nice pictures. It getting quite crowded around 11 am when all tours arrive.
This is usually the first stop on the salar and high desert many day tour that begins in Uyuni. Its a quick short drive from Uyuni. Rusting train carriages on tracks. You can climb onto them and explore. The shells in a flat empty landscape makes for interesting photographs as well.
We went there as part of our salt flats tour. It's the first stop 5 minutes out of Uyuni. It's worth the 20 or so minutes you get to check out the old trains. If you're not on a tour suggest you get a taxi or you could walk there if you're into trains or want to kill some time.

We happened to stop by around sunset time (we were the only ones there), just before we headed to Uyuni airport. The setting sun bathed the rusting trains in a golden glow that imbued the place with a haunting beauty.
It looks like you just arrived to an old western movie set. These old trains transported minerals (mainly copper) to Antofagasta in Chile. Today that railway is inactive. But is very interesting to see the trains. Climb them and take some pics with your friends!
