Tiger Station is the last station of the line of El Tigre. It is situated 32km north of the city of Buenos Aires. You can get there on the train, which leaves from the station of Retiro. The journey takes on average 50 minutes. It is the last of the stations, when you leave the station you are allowed to enter directly to the station of the boats Storm, which go to internal destinations in the delta. The station is tiny inside, but when you leave there is a large green park and surrounding streets. It is a must to visit, as is the park if you like walking along the banks of the river.
The picture was different this time ... When we arrived at night it was dark and cold and the loneliness of the station felt strange. The few passengers that arrived were quickly greeted by family and then left so we were were alone in the darkness. We then left, in search of a hotel for the night. I'll never forget the way I felt in that building at night. I travelled with Nasir, my son of 5 years.
From Esquel you can catch this train, which is known as "The Trochita" because of its narrow gauge (0.75 m). The Old Patagonian Express, it dates back to 1922 and works as a tourist trip, beautiful scenery, snow-capped mountains and some towns lost in Patagonia.
