Tucumán Ferrocarriles S.A. (TUFESA) is a company in Argentina which operates a 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) metre gauge railway line between Buenos Aires and Tucumán in Argentina built by the state-owned Ferrocarril Central Norte, which became part of Ferrocarril General Manuel Belgrano after railway nationisation in 1948.

As part of a national railway privatisation plan, carried out under the presidency of Carlos Menem, a concession to operate the line was granted to the government of Tucumán Province in 1992 and was later transferred to TUFESA.
