    This is freakin' awesome! I can't begin to imagine the amount of work that went into this so far. I can't think of the words to describe this.

    Simply unbelievable!!

    Running more to the South, from Guadalupe to Apizaco (where there are placed several ties along the tracks at south and north of this Yard to prevent migrants get on the train)...

    Going from Apizaco to Huamantla in the state of Tlaxcala we are running in a quite flat area....

    We are approaching to San Marcos (km 163) where the VB line (To Oaxaca) crosses over the line S...

    Then we will be at Jesus de Nazareno (km 235) (where the old line use to decent by Maltrata Summit (track profile of 4%) but since 1990 the line was redesigned going down by Acultzingo Summit crossing the 32 tunnels with a track profile of 2.5%... average....

    Regards

    In the south of Jesus de Nazareno... To the left there is still the old track (used to descend with a 4% by Maltrata Summit - desapeared) and to the right the new and redesigned route to descend by Acultzingo Summit 2.5% average

    Only 10kms of the old track remains the rest of the track was unfortunately removed... by a corrupted politician that wanted to get money from the old rails (selling the metal)...
    There are still some parts of the Wimmer Bridge in the middle of summit and some tunnels are collapsed...
