Belgrano reopening
17 Sep 2014


Belgrano train carrying timber from Chaco province

ARGENTINA: On September 11 Minister of the Interior & Transport Florencio Randazzo joined Governor of Jujuy province Eduardo Fellner to welcome first freight train to arrive in Palpalá, following work to restore a section of the 1 000 mm gauge Belgrano network to operating condition.

‘In 120 days of intense work, we have renewed the track and repaired the bridge over the Perico river, which from today enables the railway to reach the industrial centre of Palpalá, benefitting production and thousands of workers’, said Randazzo.

Restoring the railway to Palpalá after 25 years of disuse would lower transport costs, he added. The first train to arrive was carrying timber from Chaco province

What's said in the video is that a rail link between Argentina and Paraguay, between the border cities of Posadas (Ar) and Encarnación (Par) has been confirmed and said to open on 8th December. There will be 2 formations which will be supplied by Argentina, each able to carry 150 people, and the immigration controls will be held at the Argentine side.

Extra information not mentioned in the video is that the service will cross the International Bridge over the Parana River that connects both cities. Works are advanced in the Argentine side but have still to start in the Paraguayan side. The formations will be Dutch Wadloper DH2s.

These are the trains to be used in the service:

Passenger trains return to Rosario in 2015
01 Nov 2014



ARGENTINA: Minister of the Interior & Transport Florencio Randazzo visited the city of Rosario in Santa Fe province on October 30 to inspect progress with infrastructure works being undertaken to reintroduce passenger services to Buenos Aires next year. As well as 517 km of track renewals, the programme has involved the construction of a new station in Rosario, the first stage of which is due to be completed on December 15.

Randazzo said that 80% of infrastructure work had already been completed, which would enable the federal government to meet its commitment to restoring passenger services between Buenos Aires and Rosario during the first quarter of 2015. ‘We are making record progress in track renewals as well as the construction of this new railway station’, he said.

Services will be operated with diesel locomotives and passenger cars delivered in 2013 by CNR of China. The new fleet would enable a ‘quality service’ to be provided at fares lower than those currently charged by coach operators, said Randazzo.

In a second stage, tracks from Rosario to Córdoba will be also renewed thus efficiently connecting the country's three largest cities by passenger train.

Will they also improve frequency? What is the rail distance/time expected to be reached for trains from BA to Cordoba btw?

The only thing I can answer is that yes, they will improve frequency. The rail distance and time of the trip is not known yet because they first need to end with the section to Rosario.

CSR Sifang to set up in Argentina
04 Nov 2014



ARGENTINA: On November 4 Minister of the Interior & Transport Florencio Randazzo announced that he had signed an agreement with CSR Sifang, under which the Chinese rolling stock manufacturer would establish a facility in Buenos Aires. Randazzo said that the facility would be located within the Liniers workshops that maintain rolling stock for the Sarmiento commuter route, including the new EMU fleet delivered by CSR Sifang. The possibility of undertaking rolling stock production at this site would be considered, he added. This move would start the technology transfer process required to revive rolling stock production in Argentina, said Randazzo
