In the early 1990s, Pentrex embarked upon a fascinating tour of Mexico’s railroading operations. The Northern portion of the country was featured in our first release, “Northern Mexico Rails.” Now we continue that journey of exploration as we travel toward Mexico City and investigate the lines running east of the capital. You’ll have an opportunity to see the new electrified section of the railroad and visit one of North America’s best railroading hot spots. Then you’ll head further east to the railway museum at Puebla, and catch lots of big ALCo in all types of service along the way.

A cab ride over the last remaining section of narrow gauge allows you to savor a few final moments on a soon-to-be-replaced monument of old time railroading. Finally, you’ll venture into the incredible mountain passes of eastern Mexico, where freight trains often run with two sets of mid-train helpers. The freights snake around sharp curves, pulled by sets of General Electric Super Sevens. Mexico’s railroads, with their older railroading traditions still preserved, are truly captivating, and so is the beautiful countryside through which they operate. Join us on the grand adventure called Central Mexico Rails!

    Mexican railroading….. slightly different from the American & Canadian ways. And this video shows it. Modern diesels to the old alcos working hard on mountain grades through some gorgeous scenery. And thrown in is a cab ride…. on narrow gauge. Very interesting.

    Do you Like old Alcos, GE’s, EMD’s, and anything else that are rare or non-existent in the USA? Well this is the film for you! All of the above locomotive models are shown plus more. Great footage of the operations of our Southern Brothers below the border.
