Steam in Mexico


Steam in Mexico


In the 1960s, steam railroading was alive and well all over Mexico!  Like outlaws running for the border, the pride of US steam engines escaped the scrap lines in the North, and found a home in the mountains and jungles to the South.

In this DVD, you will see the best of those that survived in 1963.  There are 26 cab rides, on both standard and narrow gauge. Dozens and dozens of old friends, sizzling away, waiting for the signal to change. Vignettes of engineers, firemen, brakemen, conductors, all in action. The rare Mastadon (4-8-0) is covered in-depth. Three or four box cab electrics plus early Alco and EMD diesels.  The whole is beautifully photographed, much of it against a stunning backdrop of 18,000 foot high volcanoes. Made with close attention to detail by the professional cinematographer Mac Owen and his wife.

The show closes with shots from the pilot of a diesel locomotive as it climbs from sea level at Los Mochis, through spiral tunnels and over spider web trestles, to the summit of the Sierra Madre,  8,000 feet high, on the Chihuahua al Pacifico.
