The Ferrocarril del Pacífico is a former railroad line of Mexico that operated from Nogales, Sonora to Guadalajara, Jalisco via Mazatlán, Sinaloa.

It ran passenger trains between these points: El Yaqui and Mexicali, Nogales, Sonora -- Guadlajara, Jalisco via Benjamín Hill, Sonora and Mazatlán, Sinaloa; and shorter routes: Mazatlán - Naco and Guadlajara - San Marcos.[1]

It was absorbed into Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México in 1984.[2]
