Belgrano Sur Line (Buenos Aires)

The Belgrano Sur line is a commuter rail service in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina run by the private company Transportes Metropolitanos Belgrano Sur S.A. (TMB), a subsidiary of Metropolitano, between 1 May 1994 and 22 May 2007. This service had previously been run by the state-owned Ferrocarril General Manuel Belgrano since nationalisation of the railways in 1948.

The Belgrano Sur line operates the following services:

1) From the terminus of Buenos Aires Belgrano Sur railway station, outside the city centre, to González Catán along a metre gauge line built by the Franco-Belgian owned CGBA.

2) From the terminus of Buenos Aires Belgrano Sur railway station to Marinos del Crucero General Belgrano, in the suburban Merlo Partido,[1] with a single track link between Tapiales and Aldo Bonzi stations, built in 1961 along a metre gauge built by Franco-Belgian and British companies CGBA and Buenos Aires Midland Railway

3) From the terminus Puente Alsina railway station, just outside the city, to Aldo Bonzi, where meets the former line, along a metre gauge line built by the British-owned Buenos Aires Midland Railway.

In spite of the large government subsidies received by TMB a serious decline[2] in the standard of their rail services has led to the original concession being revoked and since 2007 the service has been operated by the consortium UGOFE.
