Texas Pacifico Transportation Ltd. (reporting mark TXPF) is a railroad operating company in West Texas that is owned by Grupo México.[4] The company operates over the South Orient Rail Line under a lease and operating agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation and the South Orient Rural Rail Transportation District.[5] The South Orient Rail Line runs from the Mexican border town of Presidio, Texas to San Angelo Junction.[6] It was constructed to interchange with Ferromex at Presidio but the Presidio–Ojinaga International Rail Bridge has not been operational since a fire damaged it on 29 February 2008.[7] It interchanges with Union Pacific Railroad at Alpine, Texas, and with BNSF Railway and the Fort Worth and Western Railroad at San Angelo Junction. The Texas Pacifico company began service in March 2001. Portions of the line northeast from Presidio are in such direpair trains travel at five miles an hour. Currently the line has been renewed as far to the southwest from San Angelo as Barnhart, Texas
