The Devil’s Nose Steam Trains In Equador

This Railway has to be Seen to be Believed!

The Devil’s nose is part of the railway line from Riobamba to Duran (Guayaquil) in Equador.
Back in 1976 during my trip to South America, I arrived in Riobamba without a camera as all my photographic equipment was stolen in Lima.
I managed to ride a freight out of Riobamba to the top of the Devil’s nose including a cab ride in a 2-8-0. It was a great trip.
This video has some great footage of steam climbing up this amazing piece of nature. The best bits are well into the video.
