|PLACE AND DATE
|Valle Hermoso, 25th March 1998
|Vale Hermoso, a few km south of La Falda on the old Cordoba North Western Railway line from Cordoba to Cruz del Eje, was for some years the site of a tourist line, the Expresso 900, which employed two O&K locos, 4141 and 4004. A small museum in the old station buildings has a few photos of the line when it was working in the 1970s. This line closed several years ago, but in 1998 three O&K metre gauge locos from Ledesma sugar factory were found on the station site. Two, 10092 and 9908, are semi-derelict, but 9414 has been cosmetically restored.
