From what I can read. it seems that at the beginning of next year they will hold the bid for the Transpeninsular Rail (as well as for an extension of the Mexico City Metro). In this case however, it seems that the project will call for a diesel train, so it will be interesting to see who is interested.
Transpeninsular will be diesel in the 1st stage but later the line will be electrified, so an hybrid train is necessary. We are still waiting for the basis of the tender to know if this train will be an Intercity or a High Speed Train.

What's the point of a diesel train when all the others will be electric?
I don't get it.

Exactly, also wouldn't that add to the cost dramatically?

Until we see the actual business plan and ridership predictions, we can't be sure, but specifying diesel traction from the outset implies that the service will not be an intensive one (say only 1 tph, or 1 train every two hours), at least in the first stage. Of course, once the line reaches Cancun, ridership demand may make electrification advantageous. Any diesel units can be transferred to other non-electrified lines (cascaded), or even kept for local, non-touristic services.

Mexico prepping Yucatán rail and metro expansion tenders

Known as Tren Transpeninsular, the rail project's first phase will connect Yucatán capital Mérida to Chichen Itza.



http://sipse.com/novedades/preven-am...ar-121296.html

It seems they are considering a diesel-powered train (or at least an hybrid train) with speeds between 160 and 180 kph.
Maybe we can even see the same companies currently bidding for the Mexico-Toluca intercity train (and perhaps the same models too). If that is so, I expect at least Bombardier make an additional effort this time

I think that's why they call it Polyvalent. The Lint model is diesel-only btw.

CAF, Bombardier, Alstom- it's all good. Mexico should be thankful they don't have an FRA imposing 19th century railroad practices, so that they can order off the shelf modern rolling stock.

I likes the Civity is the perfect choice between price and facilities. They will prepare a special version for Mexico.

30 EMUs, 5 cars each one, 700 passengers, 2 EMUs per trainset. ATO system and ERTMS.

Great news. It really doesn't matter what model we get....Alstom, CAF, Bombardier are all good choices.

Lets wait for good news regarding the Transpeninsular Train and the HSR.
