Kids sleeping on the Chepe train through Copper Canyon April 2014

I think I’m going to start a blog, “Great train journeys my kids have slept through,” because whenever I take them on great train trips of the world, they usually sleep through them.

Here they are, sleeping on the Chepe train through Copper Canyon, Mexico in April 2014, one of the most scenic rail rides in the world.

Some 66 tunnels were blasted out of solid rock and 37 bridges required to build this route, which climbs from sea level up to 8,000 feet. The daylong journey gave them plenty of time for nice, long naps.

I came across this while I was writing a travel story on Copper Canyon. The Chepe, by the way, is the Ferrocarril Chihuahua Pacifico, which took 90 years from inception to completion as it travels through the Sierra Madre wilderness.

Stay tuned for pictures of Cheetah Boy and Curly Girl sleeping on the scenic Maple Leaf Express train through the Hudson Valley from New York City to Niagara Falls.
