Ferromex Locomotives

Postby Ethan the Railfanner » Fri Mar 30, 2018 4:40 pm

Now here is this very interesting train I caught in Ohio, a Ferromex Locomotive leads a mixed freight with NS SD80MAC.



Have you ever seen any Ferromex locomotives in person? I had. Only once in my life.

Ferromex Railroad lines only operate in Mexico, and only at least few run through the United States, but that's so interesting I found.
As of right now, I am currently getting RR crossing pics from mostly Tennessee and Kentucky. And I have been getting Ohio pics as well. For the rest of the year, I will consist of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Florida, and (possibly) Georgia RR Crossing Pictures. I may also see about getting out to Mississippi for RR crossings, but that remains to be seen.

I don't think any of their lines run through The States.

Supposedly the owners of Ferromex bought the FEC, so they might own stuff in Florida now?

I don't know much about Ferromex, but on rare occasions even though they don't own any lines in the US they still might run on other lines.

Ferromex is entirely a Mexican railroad (FEC not included), however they have trackage right up to the US boarder, which is probably how their engines get here into the US. Their reporting mark is FXE. ALso, Ferromex themselves don't own the FEC, but their parent company, Grupo México, does now.

I've also seen only one Ferromex engine in my life as well:
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Send me or any other admin a private message or email if you want to submit crossing photos to the site!

By looking at this map of Ferromex: https://www.ferromex.com.mx/ferromex-lo ... rromex.jsp

They can go across the US-Mexico border, and you'll find them more likely (but rare) in California, Arizona, New Mexico, an Texas than the rest of the United States (because Ferromex has some international deliveries in these 4 states), and the further you live from the US-Mexico border, the rarer that you'll see these locomotives.

Although I haven't to see a Ferromex locomotive as of yet, but once I travel to eastern Texas, I may, just may spot one of these locomotives if Ferromex does one of their International Deliveries.

Caught my first one at 17th Road last week. In Wisconsin if they appear it is almost always on Union Pacific (which makes sense because UP is the other part owner, after Grupo México).
