Mexican leaders had various goals in their relationship with the railroad from its first days as the Sonora Railway up through its sale to the government in 1951. They wanted the line to provide important gains for the country: economic growth from intra- and international commerce along the west coast; military efficiencies; and passenger transportation. But leaders also feared the railroad could undermine Mexican sovereignty by dictating or influencing specific aspects of life in Mexico. The SP de Mexico presented the government with these challenges, stemming from the company's presence, wealth, persistence and desires. Government leaders met these challenges through an increasingly consistent and resilient series of actions designed to manage and regulate the railroad
