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 up close and personal.

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 as the two previous days (with Segunda Clase carriages behind) the train ran 2 hours... More

The train had comfortable seating with good leg room. However, I expected to see views of Copper Canyon, and going from Fuerte to San Rafael, that wasn't the case. The views, when possible, were mostly of valley foothills and a couple lakes. They were on the east side of the train, so sit on that side. Also, much of the... More

I found reviews on this site that said you could get tickets on board. Well this is still true for second class tickets but they don't run those every day. First class tickets which include dining and club car CANNOT BE PURCHASED ON BOARD as of March 1, 2016. The only way to purchase these is on line 72 hours... 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 advertised in economy. The food in the dining car was good; a little overpriced, of... 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 beer. In the economic class you can get a coffee, soft drinks and some snacks.If... More

I took the Chepe train from El Fuerte to Creel in order to see the copper canyon area of Chihuahua. I was told that I would have to buy my ticket on the train, so I waited for it to arrive at the station in El Fuerte. There are two trains a day, one going from Los Mochis to Chihuahua... More

In an effort to not sound negative, I rated this "Very Good". The positives: - It was nice to leave the driving to someone else - We rode out of Chihuahua, which was nice, but I was told the scenery from the other end is nicer - The seats were comfortable and roomy and the cabins were clean - The...

5 hours to and from copper canyon. Beautiful scenery all along the way. The snack and Bar car offer the bare necessities.

Departure time was very early almost 6:00am. but we enjoyed train trip and good view that was huge nature and mounts. We saw beautiful sunset from train. The restaurant in the train was very good and recommend you!especially you can take a Mexican style of break fast. チワワ鉄道の出発時間が朝早いですが、電車の中で迎えるサンセットは格別。特に車内のレストランに立ち寄る事をおすすめします。
