From Garrats of the high Bolivian desert, to narrow gauge through the Guatemalan jungle, this programme, filmed between 1962 and 1971, features an amazing variety of Latin American Steam, including everything from 2-10-2s to 0-4-0s. Linked by a dramatic journey over the Andes mountains.
Harry Dodge has captured the locomotives of a whole continent: Brazil's Leopoldina Railway, the rope hauled Serra Inclines, British locomotives in Argentina, the Antofagasta and Bolivia Railway, the incredible railways of Southern and Central Peru (one of the seven wonders of the railway world), as well as railway scenes from El Salvador and Mexico.
