Description

This is an introduction to both the currently-operating railways of the region as well as the old, abandoned standard and narrow gauge railways which were built on a number of the Caribban islands, Bermuda, Guyana and Belize. The book reflects the importance played by railways as an integral part of the development of the Caribbean region and its people. It covers not only the sugar cane railways but those for logging, mineral extraction and other goods, as well as passenger transport and the street cars of the main cities.
