FC RDC-1 2301 holds the main at a suburban station on the north side of Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, while third class train #347 makes a station stop. No. 347, behind G12 50941, originated at Zaza del Medio and is en route to the port town of Tunas de Zaza on the south coast. There are four passenger cars on #347: an LCL-baggage and three coaches, all converted from box cars. Photo by Joe McMillan, February 23, 2017.

Very nice. Did you get to see any of the MLW MX624s whilst you were there?

Marvelous experience - exploring Cuba with an RDC! Glad your trip went well. Looking forward to more Cuban rail highlights (how about those Cuban sugar mill museums?

How predictable or reliable are the passenger schedules? For example, are these trains daily?

No, we did not see any MLW locomotives. The passenger trains run on a schedule, but not everyday. You have to carefully check which trains are running and when.

Wow, they have rock protection on the windshields in Cuba? Hadn't seen that outside the US.
