Static testing begins on Cancun Mayan Train cars

Cancun, Q.R. — In a Mayan Train progress report, Fonatur said the first tests have begun on the four Mayan Train cars at the Cancun station. On Monday, Javier May Rodriguez, the General Director of the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (Fonatur), confirmed the start of testing.

During the morning Presidential press conference, he said that the four cars of the first convoy, which were manufactured in Ciudad Sahagún, Hidalgo and driven to the city of Cancun, have already been assembled in the maintenance garage.

Once assembled, they began the static tests that include the pneumatic systems, heating, ventilation and lighting, among others.

“The train will begin a new stage for tourism in the country. Modern, sustainable, safe, with the integration of communities and towns with full access to the greatness of the Mexican southeast,” he said.

The general director of Azvindi, Manuel Muñozcano Castro, pointed out that the projects of the construction companies are being carried out according to the schedule and without setbacks in order to consolidate the established commitments.

The testing being done also includes door control and passenger information systems. The cars are currently being stored in the maintenance garage behind the Cancun International Airport. Track testing between Cancun and Merida is scheduled for August.
