Author's Comments: This amazing railroad was conceived as a shortcut for exporting goods to the Orient from the central US. The original route started in Wichita, Kansas and ended at the seaports near Los Mochis. It took almost 90 years to build, 90 million dollars and there are almost 90 tunnels. The first trains ran the route in 1961. This is some of the most spectacular and difficult terrain in the rail world. The switchbacks are a poor substitute for the bridges and tunnels, but you will get the idea of how hard it was to lay this rail.
Today the route between Chihuahua and Los Mochis still operates for passenger service. Your task in this scenario is to complete this 400 mile route and run 12 or more loads of any cargo or passengers over it. You have 30 years to do it for Gold, 50 for Silver, and 80 for Bronze. Also, you need a company book value of 20 million or more for the Gold.
