This stamp was issued for the opening of the Copper Canyon railroad (officially known as the Chihuahua al Pacifico), which linked Chihuahua to Los Mochis on the Pacific Ocean. The outline map of Mexico superimposed over railroad tracks suggests that the railroad united the country, border to border.
