Here are links to the latest articles in the SD Reader about the PIR. The first one appeared earlier this week and the second one is MTS' response. Make sure to have a bowl popcorn while reading the two articles. A pair of hip waders might not be a bad idea either.

The drama continues, thanks for posting railexplorer.

BTW, for anyone actually reading those articles and watching the Youtube video, it is tunnel #16, not #6. He just counted them coming from Dos Cabezas but the actual tunnel number is #16.

There is some heavy construction on the R&R line in Mexico. Here's a few shots. The track down there is really in bad shape.

Those poor construction workers who built the R.R. are spinning in their graves.

Those photos are from 2014. It is my understanding that the line has been put back together. The tunnel, that is collapsed, is Tunnel #3. The collapse happened when somebody set a fire in it several years ago. Baja Rail daylighted that tunnel.
I have not been down there to see if its all back together, personally, I just heard from some members of the railroad museum at Campo that it was.

I ran into a hiker 2 weeks ago who hiked in from the nudist farm, caught him at marker 105 ( 4 miles in) he mention tunnels with obstruction still. Did not say what tunnels. The Mexico side, they would still need to build a border inspection area which hasn't started, My wife worked in Tecate until 2014 and mentioned she has seen no trains or nothing north of TJ. Eduardo who took the picture mentioned at that time most of the tracks from Tecate were in some state of repair.
