This is a so-called museum, a former steam engine roundhouse that was abandonned "as is" at the end of the steam era, leaving some locomotives on site. It is probably the cheapest railroad museum to operate in the world, with about zero investment, zero maintenance and zero expense per year. It is unguarded, fully open on the outside, one can visit any time - day or night! But it has kept a lot of charm. On the positive side, the engines are in much better shape than those at the Uyuni cemetery. Here in Baquedano and elsewhere in Chile (and Bolivia), an incredible lot of engines are preserved. They are available for future efforts to refurbish and operate them, should a serious "tourist railroad" or similar enterprise arise in the future.
