Photographer's Note

A ride on the Devil's Nose Train from Alausí to Condor Puñuna. "This section of the railway was a feat of engineering originally built to solve the problem of running trains from high-altitude capital of Quito to Guayaquil on Ecuador's pacific Coast. Over the years, other parts of the Trans-Andean Railroad have fallen into disuse, but the tracks along the steep Devil's Nose section continue to provide a thrilling ride" This engineering feat has been called "The most difficult railway in the world".
