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.
