Construction An Enormous Task.
With Expenses Running in
The Mexican railway, connecting the
capital with Vera Cruz, its greatest sea
port, was one of the first of the moun
tain climbers and for years was the
ireene of much descriptive writing and
technical discussion by engineers. Al
though such construction is common
place now, fifty years ago it was a dar
ing exploit, and this wa?, perhaps, the
most expensive work of the kind ever
undertaken. Its cost was enormous, but
a considerable portion of the expenditure
was not legitimate. The work was inter
rupted frequently by revolutions and
j financial difficulties, and that, of course,
| added to the cost. It is, however, one of
i the most profitable railways In Mexico.
! The roadbed is of the same solid sort
i that one finds in Kngland. with heavy
rails laid upon steel ties and ballasted
with as much care as is usually taken in
building the walls of a house. ?
Always Source of Interest.
Although the engineering feat has been
imitated many times, an-1 even sur
' passed, in th*? Rocky mountains and the
i Andes, the Mexican road still ranks very
i high and can never lose its interest from
I a technical standpoint. Its scenic attrac
I fions are unsurpassed in Mexico, and aro
