About this event

From their inauguration in 1857 there was a large British investment in the construction and operation of railways in Argentina. By 1900 about 80% of the Argentine system was British owned falling to just under 60% in 1948 when the UK railways were nationalised. In its prime the Argentine system was as modern and advanced as any in the world, with innovative locomotives, rolling stock and signalling, monumental stations, a very busy suburban network and a vast freight business. The complete network of lines using 3 guages broad, standard and narrow was at one time the sixth largest in the world.

After describing the system the talk will conclude by discussing the problems and prospects of the railways of Argentina in comparison with railway systems elsewhere
