Really nice views and great attention throughout the trip, loved Posada Barrancas, left from Chihuahua to Los Mochis maybe it would be best to leave from Los Mochis because most of the views other wise in the last part of the trip are with no light in this time of the year. We were not able to see any snow... More

We took the 1st class train - grab a spot between the carriages at the open windows for the best photography. If not then sit in your sit an enjoy the view. All the best scenery, interesting turns are in the El Fuerte to Creel section.

A fantastic way to see this part of Mexico. I rode the section from El Fuerte to Barrancas del Cobre. Nice restaurant car in first class. Comfortable and clean. It is a memorable experience.

We got on El Chepe in Los Mochis. We did not buy first class tickets as the only real difference was the price! The train departs at 6am and you are fine purchasing your ticket on the day of departure, at least at this time of year. The views were breathtaking and the train very comfortable. I frequently went to... More

The full train ride from Los Mochis to Chihuahua is expensive in Primera class and not necessary, unless you really want to say you have done it all. The best section of the journey is El Fuerte to Creel, it was packed with lovely scenery and most enjoyable. I stopped a night at Divisadero and a day at Creel and... More

A great way to see the mountains of the Sierra Tarahumara in northwestern Mexico. Definitely go from El Fuerte to Chichuahua, so that you're in the most exhilarating scenery during daylight hours. A tour operator, Copper Canyon Adventures, in El Fuerte, were a huge help; they got me my ticket, and recommended a couple of overnights in Urique, a sweet... More

Chepe it's an amazing option to visit a different side of Mexico. The best part of the train and the one you can't miss, it's between El Fuerte and Divisadero (Barrancas del Cobre) but all the vacation in the Cooper Canyon is incredible. Even though it's not a cheap holiday compare to other options in Mexico I definitely recommend it.

I have been on here a week now and love the train. The food on board is expensive but quite tasty. Many amazing stops on the way, if you can afford it stay at el mirador hotel for the best views ever in your lifetime

We took the train the entire route from Chihuahua to Los Mochis. We made two stops along the way at Creel and Posada Barrancas. We stayed a few nights in each of these locations, so we basically made the whole train ride take a week. There's not a lot to see leaving Chihuahua, but once you make it into the... More

I'll deal with the negative first - obtaining the tickets for premier class train which included overnight stops en route was a nightmare. Despite a lack of response from the online booking station for about five months, I eventually managed to book and pay online ten days prior to travel. But no tickets arrived. Persisted with calls and emails but... More
