Southernmost Railway – Tierra del Fuego National Park. This track is for a narrow-gauge train – “the southernmost railway in the world” – that goes through Tierra del Fuego National Park in Argentina. The park is located close to the city of Ushuaia. The train retraces the route used by the inmates of the island’s penal colonies (the last one closed in 1947). I was in the last car looking out the back window when I captured this picture.
