MEXICO CITY — There is music on the trains of Mexico City’s newest subway, the Golden Line, piped in at just the right volume to be pleasantly audible over the rumble. One recent morning, the playlist came to a classic: “Midnight Train to Georgia.”
The team that selects the Metro’s songs might want to scratch that one. This train was not going to another state. It was not going to the terminal, not even halfway.
Eleven of the Golden Line’s 20 stations, along its elevated stretch of track, have been forced to close until further notice.
