ELeko, it's nice to see you again!

That Civity train will look awesome. Let us hope this Project marks the beginning of more passenger rail systems.

Looks more or less like Cercanias rolling stock... Which is of course ok as the line to Toluca is more or less a Cercania/Media Distancia line using the terminology from Spain...

Hi Elekto, I sent you a PM some weeks ago.

Regards.

BTW, Mexico's Secretary of Transportation said that the Toluca-MEXICO Intercity Rail will start operations until 2018.

Observatorio Metro station, west side of the city

I guess this entire line will not reach any major center, except for the modern Santa Fe business district. But then the whole area so densely populated and urban I guess it probably won't make a difference.

Commuter Rail Line Proposed Between San Antonio and Monterrey Mexico
Posted Monday, November 16th 2015 @ 1pm

U.S. Rep Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo) is working with officials in the U.S. and Mexico on . . . a passenger line from San Antonio through Laredo to Monterrey, News Radio 1200 WOAI has learned.

Cuellar told News Radio 1200 WOAI's Michael Board that he is confident that the project 'will happen.'

"I've talked to some folks here in San Antonio like Sea World and Fiesta Texas and they love the idea," Cuellar said. "That would mean there there would be millions of new customers who could get here in just a couple of hours" . . . .

He points out that in Monterrey, travelers could connect to a super modern multi lane highway to the Pacific Coast, as well as fast and modern rail services through Mexico into Central and South America.

Cuellar says the main reason why Texans don't travel to Mexico is they don't want to have to drive through the border area which is largely controlled by drug cartels. He points out that when you get past the border area, violent crime rates are comparable to, and in many cases lower than crime rates in Texas, and far lower than tropical destinations like Jamaica which many Texans have adopted as an alternative to Mexico . . . .
