All aboard for the world's highest train ride

The Ferrovias Central Andino leaves Lima, Peru (at sea level)...


...and climbs directly into the foothills of the Andes...


...up through beautiful highland valleys...


...past hard-scrabble villages...


...desolate mining operations...


...a British-built train station at 13,642 feet...


...through a tunnel at 15,610 feet, which marks the high point of the trip...


...across the highland plain...


...until the train arrives at Huancayo.


See the complete photo journal of this ride and other amazing train journeys at the Kells Transport Museum Website.
