*Colored lines on the right correspond to the subway of Mexico City

Why the HSR when the line is so short and has several intermediate stations?

160 Km/h is not HSR.

It will more probably be a train of 200km/h max speed, maybe an ICE T Venturio and is the first stage of a further extention into the city of Morelia that is 219km away from Mexico City.

I like the idea a lot.

The key to making this world class is having stations with 4 tracks and easy same direction passing of trains. An express (2 stop) averaging 120km/h would go end to end in under 30 minutes. A non-stop might go end to end in 25 minutes.

Besides, running 4 tracks at a few stations prepares the line for the HSR trains passing over the line from Morelia.

The Intercity Train will run through a viaduct over the actual Mexico City-Toluca highway and under a 3rd level of new highway to be built simultaneously.

In some other parts the train will run underground and at ground level.

It's great that new lines are being built but we should not forget that Mexico already has a decent railway network, mostly owned by US companies however. Are there any initiatives to restart intercity or commuter services on already existing lines? Even if there's no drive from the central government it would be logical for states themselfs to look into this.

It's happening both in the US and Brazil which has similar situations regarding track ownership and lack of a national strategy for (non-HSR) railways.

this year was implemented a reform to the railway sector by the congress, on which several laws were adjusted, so not a single concessionaire monopolizes regions of the country and enables interoperability between different users.
with this, the 23,000km of mexican railways are again open not only for the competition in the freight sector but also for passenger services.
as for now, there are only some local initiatives for the implementation of regional trains like the "Guanajuato Express 160km/h" in the state of Guanajuato which already is acquiring railways rights and is in preliminary studies.

Awesome. There's more railway projects in Mexico than I thought. I heard that Guadalajara's new light rail train got started too.
