    FCCM is Ferrocarriles Chiapas-Mayab. The RR itself has territory running from Veracruz, Mexico south to the Atlantic coast, east to the Yucatan, and their southeastern terminus is in Hidalgo at the border with Guatemala. (Guatemala's rail is a basket case and last I heard was still not operational, so shit will NOT run from Mexico into Guatemala. They had a lot of trouble with banditry and poor people building shantytowns right on the tracks.)
    I think FCCM is owned by Genessee & Wyoming, or the reporting mark is, or something, don't know the full story. Bottom line, painting FCCMs is cool. I think I have 3: two as FCCMs and another car that was a different shortline altogether but was restamped FCCM a year after I hit it.

    i dont know much about the mexican railway but visiting my mom in texas last summer i painted one of those ferromex trains...i didnt get a flick, so i didnt remember the numbers which in turn never allowed me to track it like i wanted to , you know to see if those trains frequented mexico a lot! but i saw them rolling all through out texas with really weird tags on them, that i figured was mexican or something....but the thought of trains going that far is really rad!
