Buenas Dias del Yucatan! Didn't know where else to share these, but the wife and I stumbled across some narrow gauge tracks while in the Yucatan of Mexico: this is the remnant of a once extensive network of tramways that served the Haciendas. Most of these were simple horse-drawn affairs using Prefabricated Decauville track from France. Most of the cars were built on the United States, but none of the cars I saw were original. I suspect the wheels and bearings came from the original cars. The ride was about 5 miles round trip, and ended at a cenote(swimming hole in cave). Will post video and better pics when I get stateside.:!:

(UPDATE-I can't post pictures, Internet connection in rural Mexico, like everything else, moves slowly if at all).
