Hello There,

My wife & I are basing ourselves in BA for 5-weeks starting 1st January 07. We plan to do a couple of extended weeekend side-trips starting with Mar Del Plata (or similar).

Questions:
Is there a regular passenger rail service from BA to Mar Del Plata?

How long is the journey... I know it is around 400Kms but is it a fast train?

Do they still have smoking cars on the trains in Argentina?... 400Kms is a long way to go without a ciggie.

Roberto... Many thanks. Much appreciated.

Will it be possible for me to book travel & accommodation for Mar Del Plata through Travelsur?

Do the trains have smoking cars?

I think it is possible. Just email her with your dates/needs for a quote at erna/@/travelsur.net (minus the slashes)
