but THIS train used to be the real Prison-train!
This is the original train that was used by the prisoners to get to the woods, where they had to fell the trees for the heating of Ushuaia's population. This narrow-gauge train with a track of just 60 cm width was at that time going from the prison to the port and finally through the village to that part of the track, that is used still for the museum-train nowadays.
You will be able to see this train close to the maritime-museum in a part, where you dont have to pay an entrance-fee and dont have to obey the opening-times of the museum.
Directions: You will see this train outside of the maritime museum of Ushuaia, in the area of the former prison .
