Many of those ballast cars look brand new. Do you know where they were manufactured? They have a small white logo on the side that looks like a running cheetah or greyhound, the same logo that is on the gray gondolas at the end of the train.

Interesting trackwork with the multiple cross overs at the end of the video.

Interesting trackwork with mutiple cross overs at the end of the video.
hi Bill, that logo is a part of Argentine railway simbology and that "greyhound" means that the car is able to roll at high speed, anyways there are not "high speed" trains in Argentina but at the golden age in the 60/70¨s was normal reach 100 km/h or more, those recently aquired hoppers also were built in China
