I have come a cross a few references in this forum to taking a train from Quito south towards Cuenca, but I can't seem to find anything definitive on this in the forum or on line. Is there a train currently running from Quito to Cuenca or even just from Quito to Riobamba? I don't mean the "Devil's Nose" train but a genuine long distance train. If so how does it compare in price and time to bus? We want to take the trip through the Avenue of the Volcanoes but have read conflicting accounts of whether it is even possible to do this because of strikes, road conditions, etc. Or should we just fly? Thanks for any tips!
