The railway carves itīs way through the mountains, passing through tunnels, over canyons, lakes, and rivers. The closer you get to the coast the hotter it gets and the more tropical birds, palms, and cacti you see.
For a lot of the way the railway follows rivers, at places we saw railway carriages from derailed trains in the river
We caught the first class train as this leaves earlier allowing you to see more of the scenery. The train has a restaurant car and a whole carriage devoted to the bar, where we spent a lot of the journey : )
We are travelling with an Aussies girl and a Welsh girl that we met in the hostel in Creel. We left the train at La Puerta and are catching a bus the rest of the way to the coast tonight.
Anyway, the pictures do it more justice that what I can write about it.
