The FCAB gallery covers the main line through from the Chilean frontier to La Paz and the branches built by the Bolivia Railway Company and operated by the FCAB; to Cochambamba and Sucre.

Other routes into La Paz; the FC La Paz - Beni, FC Arica - La Paz and the FC Guaqui - La Paz are covered in the second gallery.

Lines radiating from Santa Cruz are covered in the third gallery, along with the FC Cochabamba - Santa Cruz whose ambitions to get there fell a long way short.

The 4th gallery covers the FC Atocha - Villazon, FC Machacamarca - Uncia, and the Huanchaca Railway, whilst the final one displays a series of FC de Bolivia blueprints, covering drawings and technical specifications for locomotives and rolling stock. These documents contain a lot of fine detail which will be difficult to read on anything other thah a desktop sized screen.
