Federico Lacroze is an underground station on Line B of the Buenos Aires Underground named after the Argentine railway entrepreneur, located at the intersection of Corrientes and Federico Lacroze avenues in the Chacarita neighbourhood and near the La Chacarita Cemetery.[1][2][3]

It was a terminal station of line B from its inauguration on 17 October 1930, and the inauguration of the extension to the Incas station on 9 August 2003.

This station has connection to Federico Lacroze railway station, the central station of the General Urquiza Railway and terminus of the Urquiza U 60px.png Urquiza Line suburban electric commuter line operated by the underground operator Metrovías.

History[edit]

Originally, the underground station was intended to be the central terminal for Federico Lacroze's Buenos Aires Central Railway, however years later when construction of Line B began, it became an underground station. When the Federico Lacroze railway station was built, the Urquiza Line and General Urquiza Railway were moved permanently above ground.[4]
