Review of Copper Canyon - Route of the Chihuahua Pacifico Railroad DVD

 4 of 5 (3)
Ride the famous Chihuahua Pacifico Railroad over northwest Mexico's Sierra Madres and through the spectacular Copper Canyon, one of the most rugged passes in North America. With 86 tunnels, a loop, and many high bridges, this line has been hailed as an engineering marvel. See both freight and passenger operations over this remote and seldom photographed line.

At Los Mochis, we visit North America's last freight-only, exclusively steam powered common carrier, the Mexicano del Pacifico, and ride in the cab of #44, a 1923 Baldwin 2-8-2. Discover secrets hidden away just waiting to be revealed. Our railroad heritage is still alive working for our friends south of the border and you will be surprised by what you see. Pentrex visited the Copper Canyon in 1990 to bring you this exciting tour on VHS video. Now you can experience the grandeur of this railroading adventure on DVD!
