Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz – Railway equipment used to build the Mayan train has arrived aboard the ship at Coatzacoalcos port in Veracruz university. Ground crews with trucks arrived to unload equipment, including eight locomotives, 28 nacelles, crane equipment, generators, and supplies.
The incoming equipment will be used to start the construction of Section 1 from Palenque, Tabasco to Escárcega, Campeche.
The latest shipment of equipment arrived at Coatzacoalcos port on Saturday from Mombasa, Kenya. In the meantime, Fonatur has reported in a statement that, thanks to the cooperation of various institutions, companies and municipalities, Section 2 is being built in the state of Campeche.
