Steam locomotives are alive and well, and play a vital role in the economy of today’s Cuba. Incredible scenes that were shot in 1996, but are reminiscent of the 1950s, show standard and narrow gauge steam locomotives working side by side with oxen and horse drawn carts on sugar plantations. Vintage 1950’s automobiles in daily use add to the illusion of a country frozen in time.

Enjoy U.S.-built Alco and Baldwin steam locomotives along with Russian-built diesels, including Alco diesel clones reproduced from U.S. prototypes, operating on a wide variety of track gauges including 27.5, 30, and 36 inch. Watch as farm hands load sugar cane onto the railroad equipment the hard way, and visit the railroad shops and servicing facilities that keep the steamers running. As a special treat you’ll ride along in the cab of a Baldwin 2-6-0 standard gauge steam locomotive!

An auto tour of several cities and surrounding countryside gives you a unique opportunity to experience a rarely visited country, its people, its way of life, and steam in daily operation in 1996.

    WHAT A FASCINATING COUNTRY CUBA IS AND ALL IT BEAUTY IT HAS TO OFFER, I KNOW I HAVE BEEN THERE AND SEE IT FIRST HAND BUT NEVER DID I SEE ANY STEAM WHILE I WAS THERE. SEE BOTH US AND RUSSIAN MADE ENGINES THERE. SHOT IN 1996 BUT YOU HAVE THE FEEL OF LIVING IN THE 1950’S. SEE A VARIETY OF TRACK SIZES FROM 27.5 TO 36 INCH TRACKS, YOU ALSO GET TO SEE SEVERAL CITIES BY CAR, SEE ITS PEOPLA AND MUCH MORE. 5 STARS AND 1 HOUR AND 11 MINUTES LONG.
