+1, it doesn't make much sense posting images without giving further information.

Interesting. So there is a modern passenger service to Mar del Plata?

Just curious, how much intercity passenger rail is there in Argentina? I knew of the Buenos Aires commuter rail network and the train in the rugged western half of the country seen often on travel shows, but other than that?

Yes, in summer there are 4(or more depending on the day) services connecting BA and mar del plata daily , with a 6 per week talgo service back and fro, so this being the best service they can offer. Apart from MDQ, there are train services from BA to Rosario(the TBA one not recommended) with ferrocentral that ends in Cordoba and another that goes to Tucuman, I think there are 2 per week in high season. A few more cities with train services, but some of them are suspended or run irregularly(Bariloche, Bahia Blanca, etc)

What does MDQ stand for? What does TBA stand for? Why is TBA not recommended?

TBA is the name of the concession for the commuter rail out of Once station. A carload of Argentinians died in a catastrophe at Once a few months ago. TBA's Concession was recently cancelled. The Concession has not transferred yet.

TBA has different meanings depending on context. Prior to the Concession being pulled, it was Trenes de Buenos Aires. Now it stands for To Be Announced.

HAHAHAHA!! good point!!! Now answering to sekelsenmat: MDQ is the airport code for Mar del PLata seaside resort city, 400km south of Buenos Aires. In summer more than 1.5 million vacationers go there, nice beaches and really beautiful girls makes the travelling worth spending.

Lobbing so many images at a time and then even quoting such posts is a curse on this thread, for it altogether takes an inordinate length of time at uploading onto one's screen, which isn't clever when it comes to capturing more fans

Designed in England and began its construction in 1874. Many parts were also being manufactured in England assembly and structural work to be performed in Tucumán.

On February 6, 1891 he received his first train coming from Buenos Aires.

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.

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.
