New Trains coming in Mexico?
Author: bandob

I just read of plans to restore many routes of Passenger trains in Mexico by 2050. This map was posted. Does anyone here have more details?

AFAIK several of those routes have no RR track, but many do, and did at one time host passenger trains.
In particular, the loop around the Yucatan Peninsula is just a line on a map.

Believe the map was created by a Mexico citizen, based on the map of Mexico City's subway.  He created a couple versions.  It was then picked up by one of the senators who tweeted it and made comments that he (the senator) would present this as an actual project/initiative. 

To my knowledge nothing has happened and there's no official word on if anything is under development.  That's all from spanish language sources, so it's very possible I misinterpreted something.

The Tren Maya line is under construction. It's apparently a favorite of President Lopez Obrador
