Detail of the train's stop mechanism for a red signal on one of the historic wagons La Brugeoise of subway Line A, which is expected to be close soon following a decision by city mayor Mauricio Macri to replace the fleet with Chinese-made wagons, in Buenos Aires, on December 29, 2012. Line A was the first subway line to work in the southern hemisphere and its trains are among the ten oldest still working daily. The La Brugeoise wagons were constructed between 1912 and 1919 by La Brugeoise et Nicaise et Delcuve in Belgium.
