Fodor's Expert Review Plazuela del Tren

Castro Plaza/Square/Piazza

All that remains of Chiloé's once-thriving Castro–Ancud rail service is the locomotive and a few old photographs displayed outdoors on this plaza down on the waterfront road. Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda called the narrow-gauge rail service "a slow, rainy train, a slim, damp mushroom." Service ended with the 1960 earthquake.
