Buenos Aires-Mar del Plata, 6 hrs 47 min, starts in December. In the next year will be 1 hrs less.

The gov will prioritize and modernize cargo trains in the north with the Plan Belgrano instead of passenger trains. The north is very poor, and the gov plans to make transport easy so products from there are cheaper to export.

Less than 5 hours by end of the year when the works are done

Passenger trains return to Mar del Plata
Wednesday, November 23, 2016



THE restoration of passenger services between Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata reached a milestone on November 22, when the first test train arrived in Argentina’s seventh-largest city following the completion of a project to upgrade infrastructure on part of the Roca Line

Passenger services to Mar del Plata were suspended last year following the collapse of a bridge across the Rio Salado near Guerrero. The 100-year-old bridge has now been replaced by a new 250m-long reinforced concrete structure

South America by Rail

Hi Friends !

I am railroad fan and retired sailor from Poland. I enjoyed some short rail trips in Ecuador, Brazil and Chile before, when sailed on board various merchant ships. Now I have enough time (and saved some money for it) to look closer at the railways on your continent.
Nowadays the railway network in South America is like a patchwork and to set up a clever plan of my trip I need a truthful info about the railroads which are still in operation. May you advise me active passenger and cargo railroads and it’s operators in Argentina? I will be very grateful for your help.

Best Regards & Happy New Year

Hi Mariwa!! I'm sorry to dissapoint you if you want to travel by train in Argentina, but with the exception of the city of Buenos Aires and surroundings, you wont see trains... maybe the line that run between Buenos Aires and Rosario, with luck, because of the lack of services. Anyway, good luck with your trip!!!

Best regards!!

What about the trains to Cordoba and Tucuman? And there are cargo trains to many parts of the country. And also the train service from Viedma to Bariloche in Patagonia. There are also some short local train services in Cordoba, Salta, Resistencia and Neuquen cities.

Yep, you're right. I was mistaken. I should mention that ones too. Specially the ones to Cordoba and Tucuman, since they're long distance branchs. Thanks for the correction

Why were so many lines suspended in only the last few years? Also will they be returned to service eventually?

When the works are done to put them back in good shape, yes. Or at least that's what we hope.

There are a few problems:
_the previous services were bad, and on most cases they only ran on a weekly basis and frankly thats not what a passanget services are supposed to be.

_tracks are on most cases old with minor repairs. (specially on the orange lines)

_Rolling stock was from the 60's and 70's national manufactured Materfer in asociation with toshiba and weerkspoor. Noble coaches but their time to retire has come.

_the efforts of the government to restore the tracks are insuficient, especially because their look to the other side for almost 25 years (1990-2012) before realizing that investment was necessary.

_Currently they are renewing the buenos aires rosario line (whitch is the most important line in Argentina) the mar del plata line (whitch leads to the country's biggest vacation center) and there are renovations of different intensity on the trains to Junin , Bragado and Bahia Blanca, that comes along with new services that use Chinese trains, even so the trains are slow in comparison to what they could achieve.

_the most important thing is that railways in Argentina are granted to private operators and them are responsible to maintain the infrastructure and the rolling stock that was delivered to them in 93', that model was an absolute failure. Resulting in 0 track maintenance and lack of support to passenger trains.

_today is not clear what model the administration will chose, but a change is needed, probably the govt leans towards an Open Access system with the infrastructure managed by the state with the nationalized company "Trenes Argentinos - Cargas" competing with private operators such as "Nuevo Central Argentino" "Ferrosur" and "Ferroexpreso Pampeano".
