What a pity that this 250 km metre gauge narrow railway from Mendoza, Argentina to Los Andes, Chile has not been operated since 1984. I would love to ride it.
This rail route was first initiated in 1854, but it took more than 50 years before the whole line from Argentina to Chile was opened to traffic in 1910. And closed 74 years later. I have read that there are plans to reopen the track, but I have not found any confirmation that this is really happening. Would be great to see that – and be there.
My pictures are from 2007, taken on the Argentine side, many of the about here.
