The Rainforest Ecological Train was designed and built for transporting tourists in the Cataratas Area of the Iguazú National Park.
It runs on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), which does not pollute the environment and has clean combustion, leaving no solid waste. It travels at 18 km/h (12 mph) maximum, and has barely no noise impact.
Exclusively designed for the Iguazú National Park by the English company Alan Keef Limited (expert on leisure locomotives, supplier of other parks in Asia and Europe), it adapts to the climate special characteristics, the surrounding thick vegetation, and it preserves the area.
It is not fully enclosed so that its 250 passengers can have direct contact with the environment and experience a journey into the forest, its sounds, scents and wetness.
It starts at Central Train Station, very close to the services and shop areas, and where the access to Macuco Trail is located. From there, groups depart every 15 or 20 minutes, depending on demand.
Cataratas Train Station is the intermediate stop, where the access to the Upper and Lower Circuits is located and visitors can board the boat to San Martín Island.
It ends at the Devil’s Throat Train Station, where the 1,100 meters long (1,203 yards) footbridge begins and leads across the Upper Iguazú River to the lookout from which this wonderfull waterfall can be seen.
