Join Pentrex on a journey of discovery back to 1992 to explore Mexico"s Pacifico Railroad. We"ll take you across the entire line from Guadalajara to the US border at Nogales. It"s an eleven hundred mile odyssey that examines the many faces of a truly extraordinary operation.

The Pacifico Railroad was a bastion of old and new technology with an unusual locomotive roster. You"ll see older Alco and MLW engines reporting for duty, including the last remaining active Alco PA diesels, and freshly painted Alco PA DH-17 in its Southern Pacific Daylight paint scheme. Newly acquired BC Rail locomotives are also seen in action. Stepping into the shops at Empalme, you"ll view both maintenance work on the older locomotives and construction of new GE Super 7 engines. Here"s your chance to witness railroading from a different era, where train orders are still hooped up, telegraphers attend to their keys, cabooses mark the end of all freight trains, and marker lamps are in regular use. There"s much to experience as we explore the Pacifico Railroad of 1992!

Pentrex takes you on a long ride through the "N de M" as you go from the large southern yards to the engine shops in Empalme. This video captures the old preserved Alco's hard at work, along with using some old technology. Thumbs up!

Mexico is a fascinating country. And it's railroads are no different. At the time of video production, older alcos were hard at work, and old telegraph correspondence was still being used. What a exciting variety of power and communications that was being used. It is like old times in the USA & Canada. A great video for all rail fans.
