COPPER CANYON TRAIN
The Chp (Chihuahua al Pacifico, or El Chepe) was privatized in 1998 being taken over by the private rail franchise Ferromex. The Chihuahua al Pacífico Railroad is a major rail line in northwest Mexico, linking the city of Chihuahua, Chihuahua, to the town of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, near the Pacific coast. It runs 650 km (400 miles), traversing the Copper Canyon, a beautiful and rugged series of canyons that have led some to call this the most scenic railroad trip on the continent. Each one-way trip takes roughly 16 hours. Today, guided and independent tours aboard Mexico’s trains are still available although many luxury travelers opt for private, American-owned trains.
