Some photographs from my collection -- Algunos fotos de mi colección

The Texas Mexican Railroad was built as a USA extension of the Mexican railroad network, and affiliated for many years with Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México until its recent assimilation into the Kansas City Southern system.  This “Mexican Connection” along with the sharing of my initials (TM) gives it special significance to me.

La línea Texas Mexican Railroad se construyó como una prolongación estadounidense de la empresa mexicana National Railroad Company of Mexico.  Durante muchos años estuvo afiliada a los Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México, hasta su fusion en el sistema Kansas City Southern.  Esta “conexión mexicana” además al compartir mis initiales (TM) me brinda significación especial.
