In the early 1980s narrow gauge railroads still flourished in Mexico. In Yucatan, United Southeastern’s (FUS) operated two narrow gauge lines out of Merida on the Yucatan Peninsula carrying both freight and passengers in daily revenue service. The National Railroad, NdeM, also operated a narrow gauge branch out of Oriental, near Vera Cruz. Both roads used EMD G8 narrow gauge diesel locomotives and carried passengers as well as freight. Jim Terrell was able to cover all of this action in the early 1980s, including several cab rides! In the Motul area of Yucatan, there was an extensive network of one-half meter gauge horse car railroads. These were used by anyone with a car and an animal. They were also used by industry for in-plant transfers. The mountain scenery is dramatic and beautiful.
