Climbing Ascotan Pass

FCAB engines 2403, 2406 (both EMD GT22CU-3, rebuilt GR12s) and 2008 (EMD/Clyde GL26C-2) with a "bucket train" (empty in this case; used to transport ore concentrates from Bolivia) will reach Ascotan summit in a few minutes. In the background you can see the massive 6145 m high volcano "San Pedro", covered by a rather unusual amount of snow. The train is on its way to Ollagüe, the border station to Bolivia.
