Remarks & Notes 
Museum or cemetery?

Baquedano's so-called "museum" is a surprising sight in the middle of the Atacama desert. In place of a museum, the old steam locomotive roundhouse has been abandoned "as it stood". No particular care or refurbishment was done, either to the rolling stock or to the facilities. Everything is slowly rusting - very slowly due to the lack of rain in the Atacama. Not least surprising is the fact that the area is like a ghost town, fully open to any visitor.
