In 1995, Cuba was one of the world’s last remaining countries where steam could be seen in action.
Large American locomotives were employed hauling huge trains of sugar cane over lengthy stretches of track.
This mighty display of steam could also be seen on the main passenger and freight trunk lines.
Splendid archive film shows scenes which are now consigned to history in an atmosphere that cannot be repeated in today’s high-tech world.
