So they are bringing long-distance trains and what? Until track renovations are completed I presume these are more or less worthless...

Are they actually doing any kind of track modernization program?

Yes, they're renewing tracks and signaling.
I've seen one of those long-distance trains myself, they look beautiful and so powerful!

I have a question: The locomotives, and the cars on the right appear to have standard UIC couplings (and end carriage passageways). In the middle however there are those cars with blind ends, and what appear to be automatic couplers. What are those for?

These are cars for the public transport of Buenos Aires, General Mitre Line












I don´t know why they have the blind wall at the end.

They are going to invest money in track improvements, right?

What's the latest for freight transport?

Yes, the government is renewing tracks throughout the country.

And the latest for freight transport was that a new hopper model is expected to be manufactured by an Argentine factory (Fabricaciones Militares).

This is the prototype:
