The Great Southern Railway  - FCS - corresponds to violet lines. As you can see, it served the south of Provincia de Buenos Aires, and from Bahía Blanca, goes through the Rio Negro valley to Neuquén and Zapala.

The: Bahia Blanca North Western Railway, and since 1904  the Buenos Aires al Pacífico Railway (blue lines) brought to Bahía Blanca the grain production from the Pampa, and also wine and fruits from Mendoza.

Even though many towns and stations are now abandoned, stations still remain.
