[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Trochita express was one of the word's long lasting railroads.

It's tracks covered a big part of northern patagonian deserts, from Ingeniero Jacobacci to Esquel, for about 500 Km.

Originally was a miner train in south africa, but it moved to Argentina during the 1920's. It was operative in regular services,up to end of the 1970's.

Now it was converted for a short touristic service around Esquel city.

What's left of this engine can be seen at alefidel's shot at http://www.treklens.com/gallery/photo433173.htm

This is an old diapositive from 1974, by a Kodak Fiesta, scanned and b&w converted.
