Map of the Mexican National Railway showing the lines granted by the Mexican government to the Mexican National Construction Company (Palmer-Sullivan concession) from the map of Captain Nioux.

The Mexican National Railway was a venture spearheaded in Colorado in 1880 by Denver & Rio Grande Railroad industrialist William Jackson Palmer. The narrow gauge railway from Laredo to Mexico City was completed in 1888. It was connected to the Gulf of Mexico at Corpus Christi by a branch of the Texas Mexican Railway.

The railroad’s main lines were all retrofitted to standard gauge by 1903.

This relief map was prepared from a map originally published in 1873 in Paris. In 1881 it was prepared for Captain Gustave Léon Niox and published by the United States Chief of Engineers office.

The inset map at the lower left depicts Mexican political divisions of 1881.
