Remarks & Notes 
Oil fired sunset. Southbound from the summit above Norquinco on the Esquel narrow gauge line. This probably would have been much more dramatic if it were coal smoke, but I'm not complaining. This is an interesting railway through some wonderfully remote country.

The narrow gauge line to Esquel, Argentina, variously known as La Trochita, The Old Patagonian Express, or just the Esquel line, linked the remote villages of southern Patagonia with the outside world. It is amazing that the line still exists.
