Steam graveyard in Cienfuegos, Cuba
Author: Lackawanna484

On a recent trip to Cuba, I passed the one time "steam locomotive park" in Cienfuegos, Cuba.  From the Mal Tiempo, site, it appears this was originally intended as a museum to Cuban steam locomotives.  Passing by, on my way back to the ship, I grabbed a few pictures.  Looks like time has not been kind. The site is now filled with makeshift housing, some trailer homes, etc.

Cienfuegos is on the south side of the island of Cuba, in an area once known for its sugar cane plantations.  The 19th century city is known for its classic architecture in the downtown area.
