While tasting my new-found freedom the other day, I drove past this magnificent beast. A freight train from the Panama Canal Railway loaded with containers. Very exciting if you’re me! It stretched out of sight as far as the eye could see.
The Panama Canal Railway was constructed before the Panama Canal with great difficulty and much loss of life. It runs from the Pacific side of Panama to the Caribbean/Atlantic at Colón. At this point where the picture was taken it runs parallel between the road and canal in an area in the outskirts of Panama City called Diablo – Devil.
