Poster in tram interior.                                                                                                                                                               The Tranvia Historico in Buenos Aires operates at weekends offering free rides around a loop of approximately 1 mile.  The depot on Emilio Mitre Street is also used as a workshop for the Subte (underground system) cars.  It must be quite a sight to see the Subte cars emerge from the underground and trundle along the street to the depot.

People were queuing for the tram  at least an hours before service started
