El Chepe Train Homepage

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

For years we had heard of the Copper Canyon in Mexico from our good friend, Captain Ray Gaines, and always wanted to to take a train ride through these series of canyons and ravines. Some say this is the most scenic railroad trip on the continent. The tracks pass over 37 bridges and through 86 tunnels, rising as high as 7,900 ft above sea level near Divisadero, the continental divide.

The stories below are pictorials of the towns where we visited on this famous train ride, and a few VIDEOS too.
