In this Friday, June 20, 2014 photo, Central American migrants use trash bags and cardboard to protect themselves from the rain as they wait atop a stuck freight train, outside Reforma de Pineda, Chiapas state, Mexico. The first leg of the long cross-country train journey, to Ixtepec in Oaxaca, typically takes 12-14 hours. On this occasion, the migrants had to endure alternate exposure to rain, cold, and heat for two full days, as the train suffered a minor derailment in a remote area halfway to Ixtepec.
