rusty armored tank - uyuni (bolivia)

This looks like some sort of old rusted tank that was mounted on train wheels, maybe to protect trains carrying rich loads (e.­g.­ gold, silver).­

Uyuni Train Cemetery (Bolivia)

This interesting train cemetery is located about 30 min walk (2 Km) south of the train station.­

The junkyard has dozens of old steam locomotives and many wrecked train cars from accidents and derailments (which are frequent in Bolivia).­

Local unmarried couples use the old train cars to make out secretly.­
