Travel 1898 NY to Mexico City

From: "Bradley Hodge"

I have a reference to a trip made from England to New York City on the S.S. Etruria, Cunard Line and then from New York City to Mexico City by train.

Was this possible in 1898 and how was it accomplished? Do you know of any travel books or map routes which could verify such a trip?

Try the Official Guide of the Railways covering the period you are interested in. It was a monthly publication, and is available in many large libraries. By 1898 I believe there were a number of rail connections that went through to Mexico City.
