Preserved Steam in Argentina (Part 3)

23 Jul

Researched the following locomotives and updated their records as indicated.

  • 7-23-2017 FCGR (BAGS) 0-4-0T The photo by I.B. Smith shows this locomotive in a shed consistent with that at the National Railway Museum in Buenos Aires. For an unknown reason, we showed images 640, 800 and 1024 wide. None of these exist, and the data error has been fixed.
  • 7-23-2017 A.G. Puertos 0-6-0T No. 8 listed at an unknown location in Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina. Located a recent photo by “Gonce” of this locomotive on display at Museo Ferroportuario in Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina. Updated the locomotive’s record and added the aforementioned photo. Also added a satellite image and map showing the locomotive.
  • 7-23-2017 Puerto S. Fe 0-6-0T listed as being located in Costanera Santa Fe, Argentina. The railroad name is actually Costanera Santa Fe (Santa Fe Port Authority) and the city is Santa Fe. The locomotive is displayed in a public park in Santa Fe. You can see it here:¬†Information Page
