Wonderful pics! I have discovered places never seen before. It`s hard to believe how quickly Buenos Aires is recreating and constantly reinventing itself, and still keeping its majesty and magic.
Impossible not to love it!

Buenos Aires also has the oldest Underground system in Latin America, the Spanish-speaking world and the Southern Hemisphere. Its first line, "Linea A", opened to public on December 1, 1913. It is world-famous for keeping its original wooden trains in service. These units, made by Belgian rolling stock manufacturer "La Brugeoise et Nicaise et Delcuve", arrived to Buenos Aires in two different designs both able to work either as trams or Undergroung stock. Aged 96 years old and counting, La Brugeoise trains are currently the oldest rolling stock in regular service in the world. They are part of the city's cultural heritage as well as a tourist attraction featured in several international travel guides. I share some pictures with you:

This is how the cars look nowadays, after 96 years of hard work. Photo: own work

I love travelling in that line, it's so vintage! It's like travelling in a time machine, even the ads are made in old style.

Here some pics.

Indeed! They're great, and should be preserved and looked after thoroughly. Maintenance is performed by highly skilled professionals at Polvorín workshop in Caballito, where the "Tramway Histórico de Caballito" displays its collection of running vintage trams fully restored and for free!

Here's a couple of videos of the Brugeoise trains on duty in Line A (source: Youtube)

As I said before, I like this thread very much. I couldn't avoid the temptation of posting a few pics on my own.

Nice pics again everybody (and you took great pics once again Corsario!)

This thread capture the spirit of the city like any other, that must be the reason of its success.


I'm loving these threads about the casual, everyday life in the cities!

I hope you liked the couple of pics I had at hand, I'll post some later now I have more pics...
