Back from the Grave - Steam Revival in Paraguay

The photographs here show two pictures of 60 shunting at Encarnación's freight terminal from Henry Posner III, also a picture of the vintage steam gunboat the Humaita which is a Chaco War veteran, having taken forces to Pto. Casado, from where they fought the Bolivians. This and a surprising amount of information on Pto. Casado may be found in the splendid new travel book, "The Tomb of the Inflatable Pig".
