Loving the work in Argetina. It is maybe the only country in Latin America that is properly rebuilding a functional rail network with intercity capabilities. And IMHO this is partially due to realistic goals rather than ”oh, we´re gonna skip several stages and go straight for "bullet trains"...". Also, really heartwarming to see that historic buildings are revamped and used for the infrastructure in so many cases.

In Argentine the train culture is more important than the rest of Latin American Countries, the network it's the most largest and the renovations cover the new demand of cargo and passengers.


For example the prices in train are cheap than the bus or plane

Buenos Aires - Tucuman: the trains 40$ARS (4 USD) more cheap class (pullman) and 400$ARS (40 USD) sleeper car. The bus 1500 - 2000$ARS (150-200 USD) or Plane 2600$ARS or more (260 USD)

Are there plans to expand/improve intercity services outside the Mar del Plata and Rosario corridors? E.g. trains to Tucuman are once a week only IIRC, which is very poor and makes for unpractical transport.

Yes, but the renovations in the tracks reduce the frequencies in all trains (cargo and passenger) the Rosario - Buenos Aires line will be have 5 trains per day, and Mar del Plata - Buenos Aires trains will be similar but seasonal (holidays and winter holidays)

And minor works in Tucuman line tracks and Buenos Aires Bariloche (coming soon), the linea belgrano, various stages of the tracks renovation are started but the linea belgrano it's most important for cargo trains. (5000 km in the Central-Northern Argentina), even with Mercosur funds for the bridge reconstruction in the Bolivian-Argentine railway.

Because RENFE exists since 1950 but Ferrocarriles Argentinos it was closed in 1990 and reopened in 2015 the coachs in private operators in the period (1990-2015) was destroyed.

In this year Ferrocarriles Argentinos reopened and and it was divided in three sub-companies (based in SNCF model):

Trenes Argentinos Operadora Ferroviaria
Trenes Argentinos Cargas y Logistica
Trenes Argentinos Infraestructura

Hopefully Ferrobaires will be soon absorbed by Ferrocarriles Argentinos.

Ferrobaires is an operator that run very few services, and not all of them are so abandoned like that. http://wwwcronicaferroviaria.blogspo...eros-nros.html

But is nearly being cleaned of routes, and some of the few services that they had are now running with Ferrocarriles Argentinos or are about to be replaced with the new chinese trains (like the one from Constitucion to Bahia Blanca).

And it's for the better. They have fulfilled their mission: to maintain the provincial railways working, as well as they could, 'till the railways began to be revived. Now it's time to join Ferrocarriles Argentinos once again.
