What is the Panama railroad like?

The Panama railroad runs between Corozal (just north of Panama City) and Colón. Some Panamanians use the railroad as a commuter service, but mostly travelers use it as a day trip from Panama City. The cars are attractive, with wood paneling, leather seats, and large observation windows. The ride takes about an hour and runs along the banks of the canal. It’s a fun, fast and unique way to see this historic part of Panama.
