GLOBE TREKKER
Tough Trains: Cuba’s Sugar Railroads

Air date: Thurs., June 15, 10:00 pm

 

Cuba was one of the first countries in the world to build a railway, back in 1837. At the time, Cuba was the world’s largest sugar producer, and its early railways were designed not with passengers in mind, but to transport sugarcane to the mills, and refined sugar to the ports. Trekker Ian Wright goes on an eye-opening and hair-raising train journey across this Caribbean island.
