World Railways Photograph Catalogue - Restoration & Archiving Trust

The photographs displayed in these galleries largely cover the period after nationalisation in 1948 when the FC Belgrano was created by a merger of all metre gauge railways. The largest constituent, with around 70% of the mileage was the FC Central Norte already state owned. There are a few pictures such as the one below taken in the days of the constituent companies.

The gallery on locomotive types is a collection of portraits of members of certain locomotive classes, by no means is there comprehensive coverage of all types. Along the lines is a collection of trains at work over some widely scattered areas of the system.
