Antigua Estacion del Ferrocarril
La historia de nuestros ferrocarriles se remonta a los primeros tiempos del México independiente, hacia 1850.

En el primer período del Presidente Díaz (1876-1880), se registró gran actividad entre los solicitantes de concesiones para construir lineas férreas y en 1877, se autorizaron los trabajos de construcción del Ferrocarril de México a Toluca, concluyéndose en 1882.

El 5 de diciembre de 1899 fue inaugurado el primer ferrocarril de Tultenango a El Oro, San Onofre y Yondeje, por el Presidente de la República Porfirio Díaz y por el Gobernador del Estado de México José Vicente Villada. Este permitía la comunicación entre la empresa minera El Oro Mining and Railway Co. Ltd. con la red nacional.

Años después tuvo servicio directo de El Oro a México, servicio que se suspendió en 1942, y fecha en que se inicia la construcción de la carretera de terracería El Oro-Atlacomulco.
