The inventor of the Talgo train conducted technical studies in Argentina in 1954 and 1955, during which scale models of tank cars and box cars were built and tested. Experimental passenger and freight trains are being constructed. This is the first application of the Talgo principle to freight train design. A cost estimate was made for constructing an elevated track for the train. The estimate was ten times the estimated cost of ground level track.
