USA Interoceanic Railroad

The British-owned Interoceanic Railroad began operating in Mexico in 1891 and spread from port cities to important inland cities.

Nationalized in 1909, the railroad continued operations until the 1990's. It successfully ran steam locomotives at least into the 1960's.

Interesting article, Vincent. I have never heard of the Interoceanic RR till now.
Kind of looks like they ran outdated equipment, judging by the passenger car in use rather recently.
But, it also looks like it was well maintained, by looking at that Number 67. A very nice looking engine.
And the coach looks well maintained also.
