Pentrex set out in 1991 to explore the fascinating operations of the Mexican railway system, seeking to discover what type of equipment our southern neighbors used and how they ran their railroads. There was so much of interest to record that we were able to present multiple video releases. Now Pentrex is proud to present Volume 1, featuring the railroads of northern Mexico, including the NdeM. You’ll see former Katy GP40s pulling passenger trains in direct contrast with new General Electric Super Sevens working on high priority trains. What seems odd to us is standard here.

Every freight train runs with a caboose in the world of Mexico rails in the early 1990s. It’s a place where the art of telegraphy is still practiced as an essential means of communication. It’s a land where railway express is a thriving business. Climb aboard the engine of a local passenger train and experience breathtaking views as the train grinds up seventeen miles of 3 percent grade. This ride is simply exhilarating! Your train adventures will take you into some of the most remote and beautiful locations in the country. It’s an amazing trip that highlights the differences and the similarities of railroading on Mexico’s northern rails!

    Awesome seeing older First and Second generation Alco and EMD units. Even a few big General Electrics! The operations south of the border are totally different that what we have here in the US and Canada.
