‘Beast’ train to triple speed

25 Jul, 2014

Nicknamed La Bestia or The Beast, the Mexican train used by Central Americans to reach the U.S.-Mexico border, plans to triple its speed to around 18 miles per hour to reduce the number of stowaways climbing aboard. A statement from the rail company doesn’t address additional safety concerns raised by the increased speed. A fall from the moving train, also known as el Tren de la muerte, can be fatal for migrants.
