Yesterday in Buenos Aires we said goodbye to the historical formations of the underground line A, The Brugeoise wagons , after 99 years of service.




They will be replaced by the following wagons ordered from China.

Nonetheless they were special! I enjoyed it very much when I had the chance to ride on one of them! They should keep one or two active on the line, that would be awesome!

CSR to renew Buenos Aires EMU fleet


11 January 2013



ARGENTINA: Complete renewal of the EMU fleet operating suburban services on the 1 676 mm gauge Sarmiento and Mitre routes in Buenos Aires was announced by President Cristina Fernández on January 10.

Under a contract valued at US$506m, Chinese manufacturer CSR is to supply 55 trainsets totalling 409 vehicles, which will incorporate traction equipment from Bombardier. According to Minister of the Interior & Transport Florencio Randazzo, 225 cars are destined for the Sarmiento line and 184 for the Mitre network.

At present both routes are being operated by the UGOMS consortium of Ferrovías and Metrovías, which took over in May 2012 after Trenes de Buenos Aires was stripped of its concession following the fatal buffer stop collision at Once on February 22 2012 which killed 51 people. The consortium currently has 211 EMU cars to operate the 58 km electrified section of the Mitre network and 206 cars for the 36 km Sarmiento route; both lines are electrified at 830 V DC third rail.

Although the contract price of US$1·26m per car is reported to be around half of that offered by Japanese trading group Marubeni in December, the other major factor behind the government’s decision is understood to be the speed of delivery. Whilst Fernández had hoped to see up to 100 cars in traffic by August, CSR is now expected to deliver the first vehicles in February 2014, with the remainder following by November 2015. To achieve this rapid delivery, the cars will be fully assembled in China.

The deal is to be supported financially by the Chinese government, with a 10-year soft loan covering 85% of the total contract value. Similar terms were offered when CSR Sifang and CSR Qishuyan were selected to supply passenger coaches and diesel locomotives to re-equip the San Martín commuter network under a US$121·6m deal announced in January 2008.

President Fernández has also announced plans to build 62 pedestrian subways and nine overbridges to improve safety on the Buenos Aires suburban rail network, which has large numbers of level crossings. Tunnelling began last year on a project to put the urban section of the Sarmiento route underground; the 33 km tunnel between Moreno and Caballito with 12 sub-surface stations will eliminate many crossings on the line into Once.

Argentine : trains de banlieue CSR pour Buenos Aires



23/01/2013


Le ministère argentin de l’Intérieur et des Transports a attribué à CSR Qingdao Sifang Locomotive & Rolling Stock, filiale du constructeur chinois CSR, un contrat chiffré à 3,43 milliards de yuans (413 millions d’euros), portant sur la fourniture de 55 rames automotrices (409 voitures) pour les réseaux de banlieue à voie large (1 676 mm) de Mitre (58 km) et Sarmiento (36 km), autour de Buenos Aires. La première rame est attendue en février 2014, et la livraison en Argentine devrait être terminée d’ici novembre 2015. La production sera entièrement effectuée en Chine dans les usines CSR, et 85 % de la valeur totale du contrat seront pris en charge par le gouvernement chinois dans le cadre d’un prêt sur dix ans.

Commuter rail uses overhead current and diesel I believe.


Sarmiento Line : Third rail (830 V DC)
Mitre Line: Third rail (830 V DC)
Urquiza Line : Third rail (830 V DC)
Belgrano Norte Line : Diesel
Belgrano Sur Line : Diesel
San Martin Line : Diesel
Roca Line : Overhead catenary (25KV AC)


* In electrified lines there are some diesel services running too.

Line B of Buenos Aires Subte is close to buy CAF 6000 trains from Madrid Metro to completely renew the Line's trains and retire it's old Siemens trains. The Spanish trains are quite new as they have not been use too much. The CAF 6000 fleet would be added to the CAF 5000 trains recently bought from Madrid Metro, which are already operating in Buenos Aires Subte.

Here some pics of the Line's Siemens trains, to be replaced by CAF 5000 and 6000...

...and here some pics from Line B's CAF 5000s already in service

Perfect!

Can i use this train to reach any station near Retiro, like Belgranor (R/C)? Or it only do express service to far stations?



Ah, about the Buenos Aires rail urban system:

The SUBE card - http://www.sube.gob.ar/


We can purchase one by 15 pesos. Is that value also included in the card to use in the system?

Or it is just the (quite expensive) price of the card, and when we buy, we also need to charge.

Yesterday this two stations were opened, but the drivers were denied to drive the convoys, because, apparently, the security in those stations work very bad.

Sorry, i'm terrible speaking english.

No, apparently, the electric system is very dangerous and the comunication between the driver and the "headquarters" doesn't work.

The $15 are only to buy the card, you must first activate it via internet or telephone and then you can charge it. The card was originally free, but then the government approved a law so all public transport in BA and it's metro area that uses the SUBE had to impose more expensive fares for those paying with with money than with the card. Fortunately for me, I acquired mine when it was still free

In other news

Buenos Aires Subte has bought 73 CAF 6000 waggons to Madrid Metro for Line B.

Source (the article is in Spanish): http://enelsubte.com/noticias/sbase-...a-linea-b-2750

These are the trains, that will arrive during a period of one year:
