Remarks & Notes 
They were built by La Brugeoise et Nicaise et Delcuve, in the city of Bruges (Belgium), between 1911 and 1919. In view of the increase in passenger volumes, some identical units were later manufactured in the country using spare parts and lags. Until the removal of the La Brugeoise cars, the line A fleet was the oldest in the world in commercial service and, also, a tourist attraction of the Argentine capital as well as part of its cultural heritage. They are known colloquially as the Belgians or the witches, in reference to their country and city of origin respectively, and due to their age and construction material are referred to as the historic wood.
