Steam lives at Rio Gallegos?

February 07, 2019 10:57PM avatar
A thread on trainorders.com about ng. steam in Argentina led to this 2017 video of a 75cm gauge 2-10-2 pulling a train on the Rio Gallegos to Rio Turbio line in far southern Argentina. There is a lot of info on the internet about the efforts to preserve the railway and restore/overhaul/modernize some of the steam engines. But this is the first time that I have run across info suggesting any real success. Coal is apparently hauled by diesels, and at least the one engine pictured is running. I'm wondering if readers here can contribute more info about this remote and interesting line.
