    Excellent work. Look forward to seeing more progress shots, and ultimately running the route.

    Looks awesome. Up until now, I knew very little about the railroads themselves in Mexico. Watching the construction of this route has been both a learning experience and an appreciation of your great talent as a route builder!

    Hello thanks Stephen, I appreciate recognizing my work...

    From the point of view of engineering is very interesting the way they passed the track across the mountains for descending the Acultzingo District... Placing 32 tunnels and doing loops... when you are climbing (north) or descending (south) is impressive the levels of tracks passed at the mountains... is like if you were asking ?how is possible that I was at that level?

    And considering the District of Acultzingo is the new way to pass the mountains.. the old track used to have less tunnels but with a profile of 4% that was replaced for a average of 2.5% to 2.7%

    I am approaching to the area where is located the Pensil Bridge that is a Tunnel-Viaduct and bridge at the same time I will post shots of the area when it is completed...

    Thanks and regards!!

    Hello Jason, thanks a lot for your very positive comments!

    I will very happy sharing this route once I complete it... I am approaching to the last 100kms and also I will be working in the two big yards at Mexico City and Veracruz City... but mostly the Mexico yard will represent a big challenge... Areas with 99 tracks that I am thinking in placing just the most significant part of the yard to make it functional..

    Regards

    Interesting data...

    https://maps.app.goo.gl/D3DTVjHe1NDuEtoB8

    Going South at this point the new track going to the right and the old disappeared track going to the left...

    Is interesting following the old path to see how the engineers passed the track in the mountains at 1800's, there aren't rails anymore, some tunnels already collapsed and there are some remaining parts of the historical Wimmer bridge... (See picture - build by British Engineers)

    Then the new and old track should be joined at this point (I mean should because old was removed)
