Cementerio de Trenes information
The only real tourist attraction in Uyuni itself is the Cementerio de Trenes, a large collection of historic steam locomotives and rail cars dating back to the 18th century, when there was a rail-car factory in Uyuni. Today they sit decaying in the yards about 3km southwest of the modern-day station along Av Ferroviaria. They’re fun to climb on, and it’s a nice walk from town to keep you warm. Many tours visit the train cemetery as a first or last stop on the three-day salar circuit.
