MEXICO

Regrettably the same situation exists with reference to Mexico except that in this instance I had no idea B-Trains were used there at all and discovered this fact only recently. I was certainly aware that Mexican legislation allowed the use of twin trailer combinations and had filmed the big C-Train box-vans operated by the Tecate Beer Company on several occasions. However, I have recently been informed that B-Trains” are now the favoured form of configuration for inter-city hauls” and that the idea is growing in popularity. Again, I regret that I am unable to include photos of Mexican B-Trains at this juncture but hope to add these to the web page in due course.
