We’ve just added a delightful new video on the Barbados Historic Railway Story. It is a 10 minute narrative and movie captured on the St. Nicholas Abbey Heritage Railway Tour.

This is a must-see event! If you can’t be here in person, make sure it’s on your next vacation agenda. In the meantime, take a look at the full movie and the new blog at https://barbados.org/blog/st-nicholas-abbey-heritage-railway/

The movie covers the history of the old railway and the adventure of the new SNAHR re-enactment. The new feature video on the old blog is a 10-minute film of the engine driver, Michael Browne, explaining the history of the new locomotive and the original Barbados train.

Heritage Train is a real vintage engine that is restored and as the original. See New Video of Barbados Historic Railway

The Heritage Machine. It is simply beautiful. It runs on small 2.6′ tracks for a fun ride around the St. Nicholas Abbey Plantation.

You step aboard from an old-style station set among the mahogany trees and coral stone clearing.

The old train chugged along the narrow tracks around hairpin bends and the steepest inclines anywhere.

It passed the most scenic lookouts and fishing villages, introducing Bajans to parts of the island that they had never seen. Imagine this tourism feature. Alas, the cpmpany failed and government abandoned it! The tracks where shipped to England and melted down for steel in support of the war effort.
