On two or three days a week there was a second class train which was 50% of the price as the first class, even though they turned out to be ...
We decided to take a bus to Creel today instead of starting the famous El Chepe train ride from Chihuahua where we spent last night. The bus to Creel is much cheaper and follows most of the same route as the train. The most dramatic part of the train ride starts in Creel and continues to El Fuerte. There's a final few hours that leave the dramatic canyon scenery to get to the coast and the last stop, but the arrival time is late at night and El Fuerte is supposed to be ...
