S & S Tours , Sue Stilwell, Owner, advertises this rail adventure in her brochure titled, Learning Adventures in Mexico, Costa Rica and South America, as:

Mexico's Copper Canyon by Rail  lead by Sue Stilwell since 1986.  The Copper Canyon system is larger, deeper, and greener than Arizona's Grand Canyon.  Imagine yourself on a train winding its way from the Pacific Ocean into the heart of the majestic, rugged western Sierra Madre Mountain Range at 8000 ft. over a period of 90 years, this world-famous railroad has been called by The Reader's Digest  'the most dramatic train ride in the western hemisphere.'
