Cycle Draisine

One of the many railroad monuments in Uyuni (Bolivia).­

This is a rail trolley built by D Wickham & CO.­ Ltd, Ware, Hertfordshire (UK).­

Uyuni used to have the largest train yard in Bolivia, at the time where steam trains were a primary mode of transportation.­ Now the train lines in Bolivia are falling into disrepair and few trains still run (very slowly) on the old tracks.­ The Uyuni train yard is mostly abandoned, and Railroad Monuments like this one all around the city are reminders of its glorious railroad past.­
