In the town of Cotopaxi, you will find this rather ironic sign at the grade crossing. No train has passed over these rails in over ten years, but because the line isn't officially abandoned, buses must still observe the standard safety rules at the crossing. The town of Cotopaxi was established by Jewish-Russian immigrants that sought to be farmers. With only four months of the year suitable for farming, most went on to work on construction of the rail line that now lays dormant. As of the 2010 census, there were 47 people living in Cotopaxi, named after the largest volcano in Ecuador.
