yeap, actually I´d used that map, because just show the lines, the new one, shows it with the right colors. Thanks for posting it! At home I have made a more accurate map, with the subway in the city with the real path of tunnels, diagrams are for orientation only, I like the real ones!

Is there a reason why El Subte is 100% below ground?

Certainly old school subway cars used in Buenos Aires, very cool.

But I want to see the most modern rolling stocks that they got.

And damn, a true commuter rail outside of North America.

I think because BA it's a very "european" city with an historic and monumental center, so a Metro 100% on subway is the preferred choice for aesthetic reasons.

Besides there is no space for above ground metro lines. What i have noticedi the city is quite dence and it's simply a need to put metro under the street level.

Yes, I guess that's the main reason the system is totally underground.

By "true commuter rail", do you mean commuter trains hauled by big diesel locomotives?

This is probably the main reason, there is no space above, the loess of the underground make it easy to excavate and is very resisting during the works, and the subway doesn´t cover low density areas.

There are both diesel, and electric powered commuters.
Sao Paulo and Rio has a big commuter service too, but the grater buenos aires commuter system, is the biggest of latin america, with 267 stations, 6 main rail lines and one light rail line, covering 899 kilometres (562 miles) with 1800 trains, aprox. running every day.

the map is from wikipedia.

then metro in BA is called "Subte" from subterranean, underground.

we just don't like it on the ground, we are even trying to put underground or communters at least in most dense areas, which for american parameters is almost all of BA.

São Paulo doesn't have commuter rail. CPTM is not a commuter rail. It doesn't operates with locomotives and the service is frequent, with headways between 5 and 15 minutes (20 on the weekends).
