Tren de la Costa is a fairly new train system that travels from the Mitre station to Tigre. First, take the subte at the Retiro station to Mitre. You will stop at Mitre. Here, you will purchase tickets for the Tren de la Costa. There is a whole separate wing in the Mitre/Maipu station. Mitre station is the same as the Maipu station. I was confused about this myself.
This is the scenic way to travel to Tigre, a town about an hour and a half outside of Buenos Aires. This train stops at 11 different stations, most of which are the wealthier suburbs of Buenos Aires. This newer train service is much nicer than the "normal" subte that you could take. It is also twice as expensive, about AR$12,00/person. You should get the ticket that allows you to get on and off as much as you want - boleto turistico. [price update: 1/7/07]
