Chepe - Ferocarril Chihuahua Pacifico
Every day since 1961, El Chepe (as this unique train is familiarly called), ventures into the imposing landscapes of the sierra Tarahumara, until it reaches the area that encircles the most representative characteristics of the Tarahumara culture, history and folklore: the Barrancas del Cobre or Copper Canyon, as this region is known worldwide. Four times bigger than the Colorado Canyon, this magnificent Mexican landscape serves as the backdrop of one of the most spectacular journeys in the world. With 408 miles of railroad tracks, 86 tunnels and 37 bridges, this route is regarded as one of the most important in the world and one of the master pieces of Mexican Engineering. In order to provide our passengers with a worldwide class service, Ferrocarril Mexicano, owner of the CHEPE train, initiated on 1998 the rehabilitation of his Express and Economic Class fleet. The most modern and comfortable passenger train in Mexico will afford you the most memorable ecoturism experience in the country.

The Ferrocarriles Chiapas-Mayab S.A. de C.V. (FCCM) is a regional carrier located within the Mexican states of Yucatán, Campeche, Chiapas, Tabasco, Veracruz and Oaxaca. Our 1,805-kilometre (1,000-mile) network of main and branch lines connects the important population and transportation centers of Mérida, Campeche and Coatzacoalcos along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico with Ixtepec, Tapachula and Ciudad Hidalgo at the border with Guatemala along the Pacific Coast. FCCM operates on 321 km (200 miles) of trackage rights between Coatzacoalcos and Salina Cruz, which allows us to connect traffic between the two routes. FCCM's employees handle a variety of products, including cement, corn, rice, sugar, gasoline, diesel oil, propane and fertilizers. FCCM's principal connection is to Ferrosur at Coatzacoalcos and Medias Aquas. Through these gateways, our customers can reach all other North American rail systems. As soon as operations are restored to the Ferrovias Guatemala line at Ciudad Hidalgo, FCCM will establish an additional connection there.
