  • Unfortunately our schedule not allowed, to make a trip with La Trochita on our Patagonia tour. After all, we had the luck on our journey by car, to see the train and at least to photograph him! But actually every railroad fan, who is in the area, should take a ride on the nostalgia train!

  • The la Trochita ride is an unforgettable experience. That travel between mountains and Valley is beautiful. Each wagon has a salamander to warm up. The guide was clear and explicit in his story. It has a dining car where you can enjoy delicious cakes. Arriving at Nahuelpan, there are artisans who show and sell their productions.

  • I recommend to make sure the tickets in advance because they are exhausted. People who travel to Esquel to do this route, remember that only leaves Saturdays at this time of the year. The schedule is at 10 and returns around the 13. A car there are confectionery and a very nice guide, which provides interesting explanations. The landscapes are very nice and we were surprised by the presence of the band of the Regiment in the area, which executed various subjects. The train stopped the March and is an emotional moment. Then continue to Nahuel Pan, a mapuche community where you can visit a Museum, buy crafts and enjoy good warm coffee and pastry. The stop is 50 ' approx. really a beautiful experience!

  • 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!
