  • Since one arrives at Esquel station begins a delightful experience. People, the preparation of the old Express, the sounds, the Museum and all who work there makes everything beautiful. When the great journey begins, children, the elderly and the soldiers approach routes to greet. It is quite an event. The wagon has a guide that will explain the history. In Nahuel Pan station mapuche people offers pastry, choripanes and their handicrafts to passengers. It is convenient if one is planning to make the trip to get tickets in advance, they reserve them by phone or on the page to get seats in first, which are more comfortable. Also the ride is short and any car is OK. It also has a dining car.

  • It is one of the more ancient of the country, the narrower trains (hence its name...). We must get tickets ahead of time to have a good location (if the car of the medium can) when does the tour see the curves in the front and rear part of the train. It also has a restaurant car for a drink, very nice.

  • Beautiful tour. Exciting... I would have liked that last longer travel (that route is greater).

  • One beautiful tour so much to do in winter as in summer. 100% recommended. The story of the trochita as well as beautiful vegetation can be seen.

  • La Trochita is real scenario in which you remounts to the past, the journey to Nahuel Pan with the train and guide included is very nice more in winter time the wagons have heated salamander!

  • Unforgettable journey back in time. It is worthwhile to make the trip, the train is very well maintained as it was in its origins, travel is not very extensive and you can see the different landscapes of the area very well. Reasonable price.

  • Messrs. Roggero and Bun. feel how compelling reason for preserving in static form and closed tightly by transparent glass allowing tourists to appreciate to the best locomotive, the best passenger cars, and of cattle, being covered walls than any resguaden structure; understanding that most existing materials and written references which have been maintained with true dedication to the present day despite interests not understandable by a form of poorly understood and therefore misapplied denotandose unlimited, excessive use desconsiderandose the years of life of the whole structure, this "road" he takes her to the inexorable disappearance as to other iconic national representative heritages historical and in many cases unique. It is my order, I look forward to such preservation, which is that of all values of these things which speak to us of those hard times Railway (among others). Who are you a the trochita the deserved rest...; thing not incorporated into a non-existent identity that has not yet taken shape in our town or our nation possessing only in largely unfamiliar agentinismo as stated ut supra -.

  • Very good service and beautiful tour. Pleasantly quaint and affordable prices of tickets. It would be interesting that they have a window to remove tickets purchased through internet so a long row do not. Those who already compraro the ticket by electronic means should be able print the ticket and take it to validate in the station with a list or something similar. Wagons and machine are kept and preserved the classic formats. The trip also can be enjoyed from the dining car, with a submarine hot when watching the landscape with the frecor of the air entering through the ventamillas. Thanks for your attention!
