The St.Kitts Scenic Railway
Located in the village of Conaree- St.Kitts has one of the few remaining operational rail tracks in the Caribbean. Begun in 1910 as part of the 20th Century modernization thrust in the sugar industry, this narrow guage railway remains in use today. It runs around the major part of the island, visiting several loading sites 'sidings' at which the harvested sugar cane was placed into carts. There are 24 bridges that cross the ravines emanating from the island's central mountain range. The antique locomotives, hauling up to 40 cane carts, transported the cane to the central sugar factory located on the outskirts of the main town of Basseterre. The first tract of the railway was laid between the port and the site for the factory, so that material for the construction and equipment of the factory was carried by rail. A collection of photographs taken during the construction of he railway is kept at the Basseterre Public Library. Today the track is home to the St.Kitts Scenic Railway Tour.
