Only one country in the Caribbean has a real railway

The only Caribbean country with an active railway is Cuba.

Used for both freight and passengers, The Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Cuba, or National Railway Company of Cuba, operates a network of 4,226 kilometres across the island. The longest stretch connects the 835 kilometers between the capital, Havana, to Santiago de Cuba in the east.

Before the Cuban Revolution in 1959, trains would actually connect to Miami in the United States by ferry.

The only other Caribbean nation with a train is St. Kitts with a 29-kilometre scenic railway that takes tourists along the island coast to enjoy the view.
