      Hi Dom,

      Wonderful links to railroad and aeronautical videos. Your research on
      the Mexican branch lines of the Yucatan is fun on many levels.
      Thank you for sharing.

Provided there is only one to two trains a week each way on this railroad, every time I spent a few days in Cancun I gave the dispatcher a phone call, and very kindly he told me the next scedules... Then I just had to rent a car and to join the train at known spots, provided I knew its time of departure from Merida and its average speed (~10 mph).
