Not a completely horrible tie, but why is the speed/km lower in the Rosario section than in the rest?

Upgrading works of urban train in the province of Santiago del Estero.

Location Santiago del Estero Province:



This train has a path of 8 km with 80 passengers. Communicate the entire metropolitan area of Santiago del Estero including La Banda. Will be 4 seasons in total.

1st) Central Station:













2nd) Station Industrial Park:



This station has dual platform, enabling the crossing of trains in the middle of the road.



3rd) Botanical Station:














Others







Video:



The journey will take about 25 minutes to go from the FORUM (Central Station) to station La Banda, so if we consider that there are 2 formations, there will be a frequency of 1 train every 12:30 minutes approximately.

Yay! Maybe they will open the international route to Bolivia as well. For some reason the rail tracks have been built over next to the border. As can be seen here: https://goo.gl/maps/pZiw4UMrCxv

I think we have to be prudent. This is just a project. The line was closed in 1990, when Ferrocarriles Argentinos was privatized. Now the line has some parts in really bad state.

And that section was very difficult to operate. It was a mountain railway, with slopes of 6%; in the last times didn't use rack. ALso the line was built in the valley of a River, and usually in summer the river rose its level and destroy the track, so the line had to been closed for a month every year.

In 80's there was a plan to rebuilt a big parte of the line, in a place far from the river, with easier slopes (2,5%). So if the goverment really has a serious plan, we are talking about a lot money for built a new mountain railway line.

I was looking at Buenos Aires in Google Earth recently. Where is the main cargo terminal? Where do trains carrying containers load and unload?

Is it just at the port by Retiro station?

Something like this



Keep in mind that the 95% of containers come in trucks.

35% of Argentine exports are agricultural products, and 90% of those are exported through the Gran Rosario ports.

The cars and trucks exports/imports use the Zárate port.

Oil and gas use the Duck Sud, Bahia Blanca, Campana and San Lorenzo ports.

Just a question.
I've been to Argentina multiple times and the long distance passenger trains are awfully slow, with a medium speed of under 50 km/h on every route. I've heard there has been investment in the purchase of faster locomotives and railworks.
Where and when are these been applied?
And how will they improve rail transport?
I've seen that Buenos Aires - Rosario is being improved, any info on what speeds will the trains get and how much time will the travel take when it's done (instead of the current 7 and half hours)?
