Product Information

THE MEXICAN COLLECTION (Charles Felstead Collection) 

With mainline steam gone in the U.S. attention turned in the early 60's to the remaining steam in Mexico. Charlie and his friends made three trips and each time a lot of steam was shot. Their original plan was to shoot steam locomotives purchased from U.S. railroads, FEC, N&S, C&NW, NKP and others, long gone from the States, yet still operating in Mexico.

Most of this was centered around Mexico City, operating on the Mexican Railway's mainline north out of the city. They managed to get a lot of what they wanted along with plenty of Mexican steam including 4-8-4's, 4-6-4's, 2-6-6-2's, and others. On the first trip they also got to shoot and ride on the steam powered Mexican narrow gauge.

On following trips they managed cover more of the Mexican Railway system including the electrified line, and Yucatan, where they chased a 4-4-0 powered mixed. Although new diesels were being delivered, Charlie managed to capture a wide range of different steam locomotives in mainline passenger, freight and local service, before it was gone.
