    Default Route - Mexico City - Querétaro - Guanajuato

    New project for 2020 - Route Mexico City to Querétaro following the double electrified line (Juarez & Morelos) then at Querétaro continuing line A to Irapuato and Silao creating there the line AE to Guanajuato (extinguished)...

    From 1987 to 1994 the start service train named "El Constitucionalista" usted to depart from Mexico City (7:00hrs) as train #9 with a consist of 8 to 10 coaches (first class, dinner, bar and dome). At Querétaro the train was splited in two sections one running to Guanajuato and the second running to San Miguel de Allende... Going back to Mexico City the trains used to be joined again at Querétaro to arrive 21:00hrs at the station of Buenavista in Mexico City...

    Only good memories of these times remains since our great past presidents sold all the national railroads to private companies as Ferrosur, Ferromex, and TFM (bought by Kansas City)... Not longer passenger service exists except Chepe (Chihuahua Pacífico) and Tequila train (Guadalajara to Tequila)...

    Route length: 383kms from Mexico City to Silao and 40kms to Guanajuato City (264miles)


    Thanks and regards

    Thanks for the positive comments about the route.... it will be a long way to finish it but... better going slow with high detail than fast and reworking..

    I will keep sharing the progress and details of places created, this is the route of my childhood traveling in the Train #9 and #10 from Mexico to Guanajuato, Start Service with 3 Gp38-2, 5 to 6 first class coaches (kinkis), 1 Diner coach, and 1 Domo coach, departing Mexico City at 7 hrs.. the train used used to be splitted at Queretaro, one part of the train keep going to Guanajuato as #9 and the other part going to San Miguel de Allende, then service was extended till San Luis Potosi, then going back to Mexico City 14:30 hrs both trains were joined at Queretaro as the train #10 around 18 hrs and arriving to Mexico City at 21 hrs..

    Thanks and regards!

    Thanks Rodrigoville!

    Before you undertook there two routes, I had no idea of the expanse and intricacy of Mexico's railroad system. I'm very impressed.

    I will be using algo Google maps textures for terrain but this route has more towns, urban areas, industry and few parts with track going straight.... So I assume it will be more complicated...

    Around of 200kms are high speed double and electrified track (Mexico City to Querétaro)

    Thanks and regards

    Creating the terrain and distant mountains with Google maps textures... Almost the half of the route completed (just terrain)...

    Some shots of the area between Mexico City to Querétaro following the double electrified track...

    Thanks and regards

    Working some hours in the new route MEX5 Mexico (km 0) to Querétaro (km 244) to Irapuato (km 358)

    Now track from km 0 to km 120 is placed and the viaduct at Tula is already installed... (Double viaduct split by a short tunel in the electrified track)

    I will keep working on MEX5

    Thanks and regards
