Gorgeous photos! I was thinking they reminded me of England, until I saw the plaque that said it was manufactured by a Liverpudlian company!

Yep. That's why they're changing the ceiling. In Constitucion Station and in Retiro Station.

Belgrano Norte upgrade announced
12 May 2016

The Belgrano Norte Line was one of the two metropolitan Lines (along a total of 7) that haven't renewed their rolling stock with the new chinese trains (the other one is the Urquiza Line). They need new trains (and electrification), no "refurbishment and repairs to diesel locomotives and coaches"... the new goverment didn't buy any new trains since they arrived, and it looks that they don't want to do it either in te future...

I don't know any Spanish, so it's possible I didn't get it. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  1. Sarmiento connection will start as a stub-end and their trains will have to put up with tricky downtown u-turns behind Correro Central.
    It's considered to be enough to go anyway as it already makes Obelisco the equivalent of Châtelet-Les Halles and the place where RER commuters are supposed to make landfall into the Subte.
  2. Retiro Subterráneo is the very last of the new central sub-surface station and will only serve the Sarmiento connection.
    Central Roca and Constitution Subterráneo make for the only common stations of the Roca connection. A Retiro "substitute" station between Central Roca and the northern bifurcations won't happen.
  3. Very much later, an own meter-gauge tunnel for the Belgrano Line will be built in parallel to the Roca connection. That's the only special needs to be built for, however and the network is then complete.
  4. Due to the versatile forms of energy supply for railways in Argentina besides the general neglect of Argentinian railways, many outer connections get converted in a way that equals the overhaul of the Berlin S-Bahn in the 1990s. Even though 800 km are possible, most outer edges need to be reworked in order to be integrated so I'd rather think of 100 km at start, right?
How important is Sarmiento line to Once by the way? It looks like only one line, but it's treated as important enough to deserve as much of a crossrail tunnel as the Roca lines.

Anyway, if the RER de Buenos Aires is complete, New York City will be hard pressed to make amends for decades of not spit-roasting Manhattan.

The Sarmiento Line is very important because it the only line that goes through the West Zone of Greater Buenos Aires and directly into the city center, so it is used by hundreds of thousands of people every day.

That is easily explained by the fact that both Urquiza and Belgrano Norte are operated by private companies instead of the State as the rest. It's Metrovias' duty to buy new trains, not the State's.
