What happens when a railroad engine runs out of track?
It stands still. In the case of the following photograph, a urban trolley car is moved to the open air museum of Humberstone. The stenciled words, “F.C. de Iquiqud – P. Hundido” translate to Iquique Railroad, Hundido Park. “Hundido” means “sunken” in the Spanish language. There is no such park in Iquique today. Mexico City has a Parque Hundido, an elaborate garden park.

Almost certainly a steam locomotive for transporting saltpeter.
