Main statistical data for Argentine railways between 1857 and 1891. The data are incomplete for lack of systematic and annual statistical surveys during that time. The source of data for the years 1887 and 1889 is Dirección de Ferrocarriles Nacionales, Estadística de los Ferrocarriles Nacionales, Mayo 1889, signed by José Y. Cortinez. Other sources are statistical yearbooks of the Province of Buenos Aires for the years from 1881 to 1887 and appendices to the statistical volumes published by the National Government's Railways Board from 1893 on.
