Continued from page 1
The succeeding Habsburg dynasty spent riches from New World in endless foreign war. Spain's decline was exacerbated by high inflation and religious oppression. Although, in history of Spain enlightenment in late 18th century created a climate of learning, Spain's misfortunes continued into next century with an invasion by Napoleon's troops and loss of American colonies. A new radicalism began to emerge, creating a strong Anarchist movement. The political instability of late 19th and early 20th centuries led to dictatorship in history of Spain and a republic in 1930's which was destroyed by Spanish civil war. General Franco ruled by repression until his death in 1975, since then Spain has been a democratic state.

If you are going from Chihuahua to Los Mochis try to sit on left side as views out this side are best. Along way, you will pass over 39 bridges and 86 tunnels, which should give you a fairly good idea about terrain of this journey. If you have time get off at Divisadero Barrancas in what is known in Mexico as Urique Canyon and popularly in US as Copper Canyon. Once you have traveled, there you will see why many people believe it rivals Grand Canyon. You can arrange for trips into Copper Canyon and serious adventurer will want to do this.
The most spectacular part of journey is between Creel and Los Mochis. This is one reason for catching earliest and fastest train from Chihuahua. The 7:00 a.m. train known as Servicio Estrella will get you into Los Mochis just after 7:00 p.m. so that, depending on time of year, your entire journey may be made in light. Since windows of train do not lower, you will want to stake out a place between cars at certain points along trip to get best photos.
