The Line A will be closed betwen January 12 and March 8 following a decision by Buenos Aires city Mayor Mauricio Macri to replace the fleet with Chinese-made wagons. 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. AFP PHOTO / ALEJANDRO PAGNI (Photo credit should read ALEJANDRO PAGNI/AFP/Getty Images)
