Remarks & Notes 
The long train of the FCAB with 40 cars and 80 round specialized containers for lead/zinc/silver concentrates from the San Cristobal mine in Bolivia to the port of Mejillones in Chile left the border station Ollagüe about one hour ago. Distance from the mine to the port is 650 kilometers, trainload about 2320 tons. Pulling are Clyde built GL26C-2 # 2005 and # 2010 from 1971 ex QR (Queensland Railway) and GT22CU-3 # 2402 built in 1963 (former FNC Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Colombia # 410, former STF Sociedad de Transportes Ferroviarios # 1210). The train is now on the passage between Salar de Carcote and Salar de Ascotan, with the snowcovered 6176 meter (20,262 ft) high stratovolcano Aucanquilcha in the background.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
