I'm certainly no expert on Mexico's railroads but to surmise you might have been on a narrow gauge line specifically the San Rafael & Atlixco Ry. It runs/ran into Mexico City. Gerald Best's Mexican Narrow Gauge shows steam c.1968 so it might have been in operation with steam into the 70's. One interesting coincidence is a photo of narrow gauge coach 777 "Primera". An interior shot mentions that it had the headroom of a standard gauge coach and the floor looks like it's covered with an oriental carpeting. The seats appear narrow but accomdate two people.

I haven't "googled" this but perhaps some info would be forthcoming via that route to jiggle your memory. I do sympathise with you. I had a couple of excursions to Mexico in the late fifties but never got very far inland as you did. ;)
