Rail News: Rail Industry Trends introduces audio interviews visitors now can obtain useful information by listening as well as reading. We’re launching a new online feature: audio interviews.

In the inaugural interview, the estimable Emilio Sacristán Roy chats with Progressive Railroading Editor Pat Foran to recap the Mexican rail industry’s key events in 2007 and discuss the ’08 road ahead for the nation’s freight and passenger railroads.

Director general of the Asociación Mexicana de Empresas Ferrocarrileras A.C. — the Mexican Association of Railroads — Roy is the chief architect of the country’s railway privatization and a keen observer of the global transportation marketplace, as well as the human condition.

Accessible at, the interview is divided into three topics: a 2007 recap and the outlook for 2008, including the Ferromex-Ferrosur merger saga; interline cooperation, trackage rights and the Chiapas-Mayab line’s future; and a Mexico City commuter-rail update. A link is provided for each topic so visitors can listen to a portion or portions of interest.
