Travel by train along the southern line of the province of Río Negro

You will be able to find a desert comparable to that of Mongolia, with sheep and former settlers at the passing of the train.
The train has dormitory cars, they can transport cars to Bariloche. Highly recommended!!

A horrible ordeal
Oct 2015 • Couples
As a train buff I have long wanted to take this unusual train, but it seems October is not the month to do it. For one thing, the disco car and movie car are added only in the height of summer. For another, the heating is centrally controlled, so for most of the trip the floor heater in our bedroom was too hot to touch, making the air too hot for us to sleep. The food in the dining car is not that good either, though the prices are reasonable and "dinner in the diner" is always fun.

The biggest problem is not knowing when you are going to arrive. The scheduled arrival time of 12:28 is ridiculously precise: The sere and desolate countryside loses its charm after the first couple of hours. This train is notorious for being hours behind schedule, and in our case it was close to 6pm when we finally, gratefully, tumbled onto the platform in Bariloche.

Buying tickets in advance is difficult, due to the flaky website and failure of the Viedma ticket office to respond to repeated emails. However, if you really, really want to, you can buy a ticket the way I did, on Plataforma10.com.
