ers, failures, and acquisitions. Today most of the freight is trans-
ported by two Class I railroads, Ferrocarril Mexicano (popularly
known as Ferromex) and Kansas City Southern de México.
Just as it happened in the United States, privatization of pas-
senger rail didn't work in Mexico. Today there are only two
passenger trains running, both operated by Ferromex. One, the
Tequila Express, is essentially a tourist train. The other, El Chepe,
runs daily in both directions along the original route between
Chihuahua and Los Mochis through the Copper Canyon.
