New Train in Paraguay?

Could it really be true? Check out this article that says that there is a contract with a South Korean company to explore light rain in Asuncion.  Thanks to the British, Paraguay had the first train in South America.  And then there is the joke that it is the last train in Paraguay.  The photo below is from 2005 and is indeed a working steam locomotive.  When I lived in Aregua the train woke me most mornings upon its arrival.  Occasionally I would stumble out of my bed and watch it take on water. A blast from the past.  Imagine Asuncion with light rail.  I bet it wouldn’t be as low cost as the bus.
