Tough Trains: Cuba's Sugar Railroads

Cuba was one of the first countries in the world to build a railway, starting all the way 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. In this episode, host Ian Wright goes on an eye-opening and hair-raising train journey across the Caribbean island of Cuba. The communist country's railway network is dilapidated and very unreliable, but it ends up being a fantastically enjoyable trip.
