The Southern Fuegian Railway or the Train of the End of the World
is a 500 mm (19 3⁄4 in) (narrow-gauge) steam railway in Tierra del Fuego
. It was originally built as a freight line to serve the prison of Ushuaia
, specifically to transport timber. It now operates as a heritage railway into the Tierra del Fuego National Park
and is considered the southernmost functioning railway in the world.
Services leave from the 'End of the World' station 8 km west of Ushuaia. The route takes passengers along the Pico Valley in the Toro gorge and to Cascada de la Macarena station where visitors are able to learn about the Yámana people and climb to a viewpoint at a 15-minute stop. The train then enters the national park and the forest, travelling through the valley below the mountains, reaching El Parque station where tourists can return by coach or train.
