    Jesús Nazareno to Cañada Morelos (at the South switch of the siding the track remains quite flat... But two or three curves later the fun starts with the tunnel 1 of 32 and the track descending at 2.5%...

    G'day mate, your work on this route is superb. I especially like the terrain rendering you have produced.

    Cheers

    Hello Damo,

    I appreciate your comments about the route... Definitively Google maps as terrain provides a significant difference to obtain realism even when the size of route pays the price for that realism being 25GBytes.

    Thanks again...

    Going south... definitively the best part of route starts at Cañada Morelos after taking the first tunnel... Here some shots of Acultzingo District and it's 32 tunnels, two bridges and some loops

    Regards

    Hi Rodrigo,
    May I ask - how many miles is the route?
    Also, and this may be an unusual question, are there stretches of the route where there are no mountains/hills in sight?

    Superb work, my friend

    Hello my friend,

    Here is the explanation... the route is line S Mexico City to Veracruz with a length of 256 miles (410kms)

    Going south to Veracruz...

    Mile 0 to 18 - Hugh density of urban areas (Mexico City and state of Mexico)

    Mile 18 to 160 we could summarize that is flat with some hills very far away from the track and small towns

    Mile 160 to 200 is the Acultzingo District with several mountains and the track crossing them by tunnels and loops and descending at average of 2.5% -

    Mile 200 to 209 the track keep descending average of 2.7% to 3% big urban areas (big Metlac Bridge and the relevant Pensil Tunnel- Viaduct-Bridge) - Mountains area surrounding the track

    Mile 209 to 256 track descends with an average of 1-1.5% till Veracruz (see level) areas without mountains and vegetation changed like to be close to the coast (palms and very green)

    Thanks for your comments!!! I appreciate it

    Regards
