A Visit To Buenos Aires
Author: Mr_Slides

It has been 28 years since my last trip to Buenos Aires.  Here's an image of a rare ALCO RSD16 (The only ones built).  Are there any railfans from BA on TO that would have some time to railfan with me while I am there next week?  I arrived 12/15 and depart 12/20.  I have 12/18 open.

Thanks,

Jjohn C. Benson

Hello

That shot brings back memories.  I was down there at the same time in the 1990s.  I was detained once while watching trains at Retiro in BA.  It was harmless, they asked a bunch of questions, made a request for a bribe, then let me go.  Turns out there was a law (not sure if still in effect) against taking photos or video of trains or facilities owned by the government.  I didn't know that at the time.

Take care,

Mark

Beautifull engines. Brazil had RSD12, but they were torched one or two years ago. None survived. It's sad.
