Train trip down the "Devils Nose" - Ecuador

Derailments always draw a crowd !
This was the first derailment of the day at a town called Guamote, there were two more derailments and the train also hit a
rock which damaged a hydraulic hose, all were fixed quite quickly and the damaged track was fixed only if the train
derailed on a ropy section of track. Luckily the speeds are low so it is not to hard to coax the train back on the tracks. (Derailments must be a regular occurance because they carry a lot of repair equipment with them.)
