Buenos Aires Trains (TBA) operates one train per week on the route using a former Netherlands Railways Wadloper dmu, but the poor state of the track on the Uruguayan section, low ridership, and the cost of subsidising operations led the Uruguayan government to suspend the service between Paysandu and Paso de los Toros in December. The service now runs only as far as Salto, the first station in Uruguay.

Train leasing company MRCE has decided to close its sales office in Munich and concentrate this activity at Mitsui's head office in Amsterdam. This will complete the restructuring of the business which is designed to separate servicing and maintenance from leasing.
