The 15 hour journey from Los Mochis to Chihuahua (or the other way) is really a great experience. It is advisable to break the ride halfway as it can get tedious even in first class. This gives you the opportunity to explore the Copper Canyon...More

This is an amazing train ride. The seats are comfy and have plenty of leg room. We took Primera Clase because we left Creel for Los Mochis on a Tuesday and that was all that was available that day. This was actually a good choice...More

I'm not a train buff, and after sitting and rolling on the Baja ferry for 7 hours yesterday, I really didn't need to be sitting and rocking on a train for 10 hours today. We travelled in first class just to avoid the "take-away" food...More

We've got the economic class.I really recommend it. It's much cheaper and you will have the same view. Differences between classes: in the VIP class you have newer train seats, a restaurant wagon where you can buy food (very expensive and not really good) and...More

Is there a safe place to leave your car in Chihuahua? Also just going for 2 days leaving from Chihuahua? Any recommendations?

Barbara, I can't say because we flew in and took a taxi to the station. I don't have a gauge for the safety of the neighborhood the station is in.

Hi! Are you able to buy a one-way ticket and from los Mochis to Chihauhua and get off at one of the stops and back on the next day? or must you purchase a different ticket from each place you stop to your next stop? Thank you!
