Train & Rail Journeys in Colombia

Colombia once had a railroad system that was the backbone of Colombia's transport infrastructure. Trains were the lifeline of the country. Today, there are plans in place to restore many railways. You can ride the tourist train out of BogotΓ‘ in direction of the salt cathedral in ZipaquirΓ‘.
