The ten cent train trip
Train service has returned in a limited fashion to El Salvador. Starting today, a passenger train runs four times a day from Apopa through Ciudad Delgado and into San Salvador and returns. The fare is only 10 cents -- this is designed to be cheap transportation for the poor. One casualty of the re-activation of the train line has been the dislocation of poor families living in shanties along the train track, victims of poverty and marginalization.
