link between the Pacific and Atlantic ports and complements
the existing hub transportation infrastructure provided by
the Canal, the Colon Free Trade Zone, the Port terminals,
highways and airports.
In addition, its luxurious passenger service allows
travelers to enjoy a journey through the lush jungles of
Panama flanking the scenic Panama Canal.

Railway or Panama Railroad was the world's first
transcontinental railroad. It stretches 48 miles (77 km)
across the isthmus of Panama from the Atlantic Ocean to the
Pacific Ocean. The Panama Railway was built during the
period of 1850 to 1855. The infrastructure of this
functioning railroad was of vital importance to the plan to
build the Panama Canal decades later. Source:
