Trains Presents: Peru 2017 tour, day 4

We’ll ride the nose of a GE C30-7 for the trip from LaOroya to Hauncayo, Peru. We were riding on a Ferrocarril Central Andino railroad branch down a gorge that sees about one train a week. We’ll also herd llamas by train, cross bridges, pierce tunnels, see a display steam locomotive, and get a final surprise at our destination: unloading bagged cement from containers into trucks – by hand!
