Managed study of rail passenger service near Puebla, Mexico

Tlaxcala, Mexico

For an international economic and infrastructure development firm, managed the technical railroad aspects of the study for implementation of passenger rail service in the Tlaxcala Industrial Corridor, including infrastructure, vehicles, station concepts, and operational requirements. The proposed service concept would involve frequent all-day service on a 45-kilometer branch line between Apizaco, Santa Ana/Chiautempan and Puebla, currently operated for freight service only by concessionaire Ferrosur. The line has been without passenger service since 1990 but is located in a densely populated corridor with vigorous economic growth, limited highway infrastructure and significant passenger potential.
