The train at the End of the World - Ushuaia

The train at the End of the World, or Austral Fueguino Railroad, is the first ecological train of the world since it reaches and enters a part of the National Park that had been hidden for a long time.

The station is located 3 km away from Usuhaia. The train is made up of steam locomotives and comfortable wagons. The train follows Pipo River and takes 1 hour and 40 minutes to reach its destination point. After a gentle bend the train goes up to reach La Macarena Station. Then it goes on, crossing the old sawmill. When it leaves the river it enters a thick forest.

Originally, the train was used by the prisoners to cut wood and take it from the actual territory of National Park to the city.
