  • This video is brought to you by squarespace.

  • We are disembarking here.

  • Apparently we have like 15, 20 minutes to visit a little waterfall.

  • We go, it's been, it's been a nice journey, scenic journey so far.

  • Well, good morning.

  • Good morning guys.

  • Good morning.

  • Good morning guys, greetings from beautiful sunny Schweiger.

  • Today we had two days of almost like Armageddon.

  • Weather compared to this is good.

  • We are really appreciating this gorgeous day.

  • Yes, and perfect weather for today's activity.

  • We are going to be riding the train to the end of the world.

  • Indeed, So exciting.

  • We're actually, we've arrived at the station And we're gonna be boarding in just about 30 minutes.

  • So we're gonna snap some photos, show you around and then we're going to tell you more about this historic and iconic train here in Patagonia.

  • Exactly.

  • The southern Fujian railway, better known as the train of the end of the world is esteem Railway located in Argentina's Tierra del Fuego province.

  • Why would you need a train at the end of the world?

  • You ask, While you swallow was initially developed as a penal colony for repeat offenders.

  • With the first prisoners arriving in 18 84 the prisoners were put to work building their own prison, which meant transporting rock and timber from the nearby forests to the town.

  • First using oxen, pulled wagons and eventually this narrow gauge railway.

  • Back then this was known as the train of prisoners and the prisoners had to complete the journey twice a day to and from the logging camps.

  • Today, the train at the end of the world has been developed into a heritage train and it's considered the southernmost functioning railway in the world.

  • It's a must do activity for anyone visiting Suada and more.

  • So if you're a train enthusiast.

  • All right guys, so now let's talk money matters.

  • First, up, the ticket to ride the train to the end of the world.

  • There are three different classes.

  • We are going in the tourist class, which is the lowest class, the cheapest class that is actually $30 per person.

  • And it's the same price whether you want to take the train round trip to the park and back or whether you're just taking into the park and then getting off and spending the day hiking in Tierra del Fuego National Park and then aside from the tourist class, you have to hire classes where you get fed, there's one higher class where you get a sandwich and I believe two beverages and then there's an even fancier class departing at lunchtime and in the afternoon where you actually get a meal and you can choose like a lentil stew, lamb stew, you've got wine, regional dishes, it's a bit fancier, it's a bit pricier, I believe.

  • It was over $80.

  • So we were like, you know what, It's an hour train ride.

  • I think $30 we're going to be filming mostly the scenery.

  • Exactly.

  • We just want to enjoy the views.

  • And then the other thing you also need to pay for is admission to The National Park.

  • Again different price tiers for the park depending on where you are from.

  • Um for foreigners it is 560 pesos which would be $9 if you are Argentine but from outside of province it is 180 pesos which would be $3.

  • And it's even cheaper if you are from the province of Tierra del fuego and you have to pay for this.

  • They've said I'm from Germany, my gosh, they got that wrong, I'm just looking at this.

  • Maybe look at your man, look at your last name and thought you were my last name.

  • That explains it.

  • But as I was saying, like even if you're riding the train and then turning around and coming right back by train, you still have to pay the entrance to the park.

  • Even if you're not planning to hike, you're not planning to stay there.

  • Uh so keep that in mind.

  • They have the ticketing booths as soon as you arrive here at the train station.

  • So you'll have to get your train ticket, get your park pass and you are all set.

  • Also we are boarding in like 15, 20 minutes.

  • So let's head on over.

  • We'll show you a bit of the station and yeah, let's do this trip number two.

  • This train journey begins at the end of the world station, which is located eight km west of the city of use Wada.

  • The railway then travels along the PICO Valley and the Toro gorge and it's a very scenic journey.

  • We love seeing all the horses.

  • All right guys, so we have arrived at Macarena station, we are disembarking here.

  • Apparently we have like 15, 20 minutes to visit a little waterfall and also the silly photos that we took with the prisoners.

  • You can get those here as well.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm, mm.

  • Okay.

  • Mhm, mm hmm.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • In rio the train.

  • Show us her seat we're right here.

  • No, no, no.

  • We were the very last table my friend.

  • That's right, yeah, look at that.

  • Yeah, we are.

  • Here we are.

  • Yeah.

  • Has it been so far?

  • It's been fun.

  • We weren't on the train very long before we got off to a nice little place to walk, a little waterfall, very busy, very busy.

  • Yeah, for sure.

  • It's been it's been a nice journey, scenic journey so far.

  • Yeah, I'd say we maybe rode the train for like five minutes before we go to Macarena station.

  • If even that.

  • Yeah.

  • And then once you get here there's like a little waterfall to visit.

  • So we did that and you can also buy the pictures that you take before you board with the prisoners because I mean this train was used four prisoners to transport them before you know, it was a penal colony guys, humble origins.

  • Huh?

  • We then continue the journey into Tierra del fuego National Park, eventually arriving at the park station, as we mentioned earlier.

  • This is where you have the option of disembarking and spending the day exploring the park.

  • They'll keep in mind that you need to make your own way back into town.

  • Either by shuttle taxi or hitchhiking.

  • That was a lot of fun.

  • It was.

  • Although would you believe I had a little siesta towards the end there.

  • Do you sleep on every mode of transportation?

  • You slept on the last train ride?

  • We went to an all my 10.

  • Okay.

  • I say honestly it's just that swing motion back and forth as we were approaching the park, my eyes were like starting to close like oh what's happening?

  • I was awake on the way back, we were chatting with them are nearby with our passengers, other passengers.

  • Um but yeah, like when you get on the train they give you some headphones and you can listen to the history of the train and the prisoners who used to ride the strain to work to chop down trees.

  • So it's, it's really interesting.

  • I enjoyed it.

  • I found really interesting today was we met A cab driver this morning, was telling us that he came here on vacation like 41 years ago.

  • Yeah, here for a month.

  • Never left and he never left.

  • And he said that at the time the city was just starting to grow 7000 and now it's what?

  • 120.

  • So that shows you how exactly this place has become a big and it comes from very humble origins.

  • It used to basically be a penal colony.

  • Very fascinating.

  • It's just a beautiful journey to lots of nice scenery.

  • So, so yeah, that was good.

  • Now we are back and we're just waiting to be picked up.

  • Is the shuttle here, Shuttle might be here back to town, we go and now let's take a quick break.
